In Their Own Words: Remembering Linfield College History aims to capture the history of Linfield through the eyes of the people who saw it firsthand. The goal is to talk to students, alumni, administrators, staff, and others who have helped shape Linfield's past, present, and future.
This collection launched with interviews featuring two former Linfield presidents. Dr. Charles U. Walker served as president from 1975-1992, rescuing a college that was struggling financially and in dire need of a strong, compassionate leader. Dr. Vivian A. Bull served as president from 1992-2005 and oversaw the vast expansion of Linfield's campus, adding land and buildings to help secure the college's future.
The interview series will continue with interviews of faculty, staff, and alumni of Linfield College who, while their experiences are different, all have thoughts to share about Linfield's past, present, and future.
