University Schools:

Our First 100 Years

A comprehensive history of University City, from its rural days, through its creation as a city by E. G. Lewis, to the vibrant and diverse community of today.

Also documented is the city's growth as a community of beautiful subdivisions and parks, fine schools, lively commercial centers, and progressive government. 192 pages, index, maps.
