John Robert Greene captures the spirit, grandeur, and rich history of Syracuse University -- known as The Hill -- in this photographic journey, which spans SU's 130 years.

With over four hundred photographs compiled from archives and private collections -- many never before published, Greene draws on his own expertise as a historian and author of two previous books on the history of Syracuse University to tell a compelling story of a unique institution.

From the early founders to the greatest Orange athletes to the eclectically beautiful campus, The Hill illustrates the life history of this majestic institution. Greene portrays generation after generation of teachers, students, athletes, and benefactors who have graced its halls.

The book concludes with an enlightening interview with University Chancellor Kenneth Shaw in which Shaw reveals his vision for Syracuse University in the twenty-first century.

Alumni and friends of Syracuse University will find that this cherished volume evokes not only personal memories but an estimable pride worthy of this noble and enduring institution.
