Looking Back: Historical Briefs by Professor Tom Taylor

  • With Wittenberg now celebrating its 175th year, and the University unable to hold regular in-person classes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Professor of History Tom T. Taylor has started circulating several pieces on Wittenberg's history. Some originated in an earlier series, either This Month in Wittenberg History or Happy Birthday Wittenberg. Others have their origin in the Wittenberg History Project or in some other, miscellaneous project. Sincerest thanks to Professor Taylor for connecting alumni, faculty, staff, and students through a historic lens. Learn More
