The definitive history, From the Mansion to the University: A History of Armstrong Atlantic State University, researched and written by Professor of History Emerita, Dr. Janet D. Stone, will be published this year.
Based on the reaction of early readers of the manuscript, we believe the book will be a cherished item for AASU family, friends and alumni but will also appeal to local historians. With the archival assistance of Lane Library's Caroline Hopkinson, the book will also include wonderful images of our past.
