about this item

Established in 1966 as Pennsylvania's first upper division and graduate center, Penn State Harrisburg has served a vital role in the south central Pennsylvania community for more than half a century. Located in Middletown, eight miles east of Harrisburg and on the site of the 19th-century Keystone Farm, the college occupies 218 acres that operated as the Olmsted Air Force Base until it was purchased by the Pennsylvania State University and named the "Capitol Campus." In just 50 years, Penn State Harrisburg has grown from only 18 students to become a comprehensive four-year college and graduate school with an enrollment of over 4,500. Featuring rare photographs and unique publications from the school's extensive archives, Penn State Harrisburg illustrates the college's journey--the people, places, events, and activities that have influenced its tremendous progress since the 1960s.
