The Quaker, 1963

Date: 1963

Author: Guilford College

Biographical/Historical abstract: Guilford College, a Quaker-supported four-year liberal arts school in Greensboro, N.C., was chartered in 1834 and opened in 1837 as New Garden Boarding School.

Additional contributor:

Description: The 1963 Guilford College yearbook, The Quaker, shows an increase in diversity at the school through candid shots of students and faculty, and in sports team portraits, which include African and other international students. This was the first year that Africans were a part of the campus student community. Also notable is the 1963 soccer team which was predominantly international and thereby indicates minority students were representing the school during the team's first year.
