 Raimund E. Goerler, acclaimed archivist and historian, has written the definitive guidebook to the history of The Ohio State University, one of the world's largest universities and a prominent land-grant institution. Using a topical strategy—ranging widely through critical events in OSU's history, vignettes of prominent alumni, and stories of well known campus buildings, historic sites, presidents, student life, traditions, and athletics—The Ohio State University: An Illustrated History is the first one-volume history of the University to appear in more than fifty years.

Always entertaining and consistently informative, the book is lavishly illustrated with more than 300 rare photographs from the OSU Archives. The Ohio State University: An Illustrated History is a must-have for all who call themselves Buckeyes.
Professor Raimund E. Goerler has been University Archivist, The Ohio State University (1978-2010) and assistant director for Special Collections and Archives of the OSU Libraries (2000-2010).

Editorial Reviews

“Rai Goerler's The Ohio State University: An Illustrated History, conceived, organized, and now lovingly prepared, helps document its remarkable past while opening a window to glimpse its evolving eminence. As University Archivist, Professor Goerler has had ready access and, more importantly, has amassed decades of knowledge about both the history and the million photographs his office has collected and meticulously preserved. For almost a decade, he sustained and supplied academic excellence to the course offered in Arts and Sciences entitled ‘The Ohio State University: Its History and Its World.’ Naturally, if the course is able to be continue after his retirement, this book will be better for the students than any preceding source. More relevant and more lasting, it is a book that any of the hundreds of thousands of graduates, and the millions of admirers of OSU, should consider owning or to give to loved ones for any very special occasion. It is a special book.”—George Paulson, MD, emeritus professor of neurology
