Welcome back, students, faculty & staff!  There are many renovations and improvements happening on campus right now.  A great opportunity for preservation and archiving the living history of this beautiful campus. 

Over the Summer, I sorted through several boxes of photos and still have many unnamed photos.  I'll be posting them as we move forward.  If you recognize anyone, please feel welcome to email me at ejones@marionmilitary.edu with any information you may have. 

I'm also working on a history of the High School.  If you attended the HS and want to share your stories - or add them to our Oral History Project, we would love to hear from you!

Here's to a great year!

Chapel Windows

Last week I had the pleasure of showing Rear Admiral S Stosz around MMI's historic Chapel building. I thought I'd share some excerpts from the pamphlet "Providing Windows of Character". (c) 1968 MMI

September 2011 - 1919 Photo Album

Today, while doing research on early 1900's Cadet classes, I stumbled upon a most fascinating of finds: a personal Cadet photo album from 1919. So, of course, I put everything on hold so I could scan and preserve this amazing piece of MMI history. I can't resist sharing some of those images with you here.
