The Story Of Flagler College’s First 50 Years Told Through The People, Places And Things That Shaped It

Each of the 50 people, places and things that we selected represent a major milestone in the development of Flagler College. Our selections include the expected and the unexpected, ordinary, everyday objects and the extraordinary people that helped us turn nouns into verbs and change lives. Together, they tell our story. But it is not the complete story. Like all milestones, they indicate how far we have come. They do not measure the thousands of stepping stones, those everyday moments, the hard work and dedication, that got us to those key celebrated moments in our rich history.

One for the Books

The Proctor Library has often been called the heart of the College. It is a point of pride for the Flagler community and a symbol for the ascending quality of our educational programs. The library provides a computer center, meeting rooms, classrooms and much needed study space for the students and faculty. With its capacity to hold 175,000 volumes, it is truly one for the books.
