Welcome to the College Histories Collection.
When most people refer to the written history of Florida State College at Jacksonville, they mean A College Tells its Story, the oral history compiled in 1991 by Professor Robert Gentry and published by the College on the occasion of its 25th anniversary. However, Gentry’s work was just the most recent and most ambitious of the efforts to chronicle the life of the institution. FSCJ valued its history from the beginning, and began efforts to preserve and record it within just a few years of opening their doors in 1966. This collection features the various written histories produced by the College over the decades, as well as a subcollection dedicated to A College Tells its Story and materials related to it.
