For a century Rockhurst University has stood for excellence in learning, leadership, and service.

The 416-page book features almost 400 color and black-and-white photographs, illustrations, historical documents, and sidebars, in addition to a complete index of people, places, and events. It is ideal for alumni, friends of Rockhurst, or anyone interested in the history of Kansas City and Catholic beginnings in the region.
