Alumnus and Graduate School Director Publishes Book

Share on:

Posted on Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Dr. Robert Zorn, a Westminster College alumnus and director of its graduate school, has published Westminster College through Time.

Using archival photos and information culled from college records, this photo journal helps capture some of the unique story that is Westminster College, one of the country’s leading small private liberal arts colleges.

“Then” and “now” photos side by side show how the buildings, sports, activities and community have evolved over the decades from the College’s 1852 founding to the present day.

Zorn’s Westminster ties extend to his family.  Grandsons Tyler Kelley ’10 and Sam Becherer ’12 are graduates and Nathan Kelley is the residence director in Eichenauer Hall.  Granddaughter Kate Becherer is a junior early childhood/special education major and granddaughter Leigh Kelley was Zorn’s research assistant for the book.

Prior to his position as director of Westminster’s Graduate School, Zorn was a department coordinator and adjunct faculty member.  Concurrently, he held administrative positions in several public schools in the area.

At Zorn’s request all proceeds from the sale of the book will go directly to the Westminster College Alumni Association.

Contact Zorn at 724-946-7031 or email for additional information.
