The cover of the 1952 Glomerata the 55th edition of the yearbook is "a neo-plastic design inspired by the layout of the main campus."
If you squint your eyes just right those lines do look like the sidewalks worn smooth by years of marching academics.
That sketch at the bottom, of course, is William J. Samford Hall. Now housing the University's administration, in 1952 it was home of the graduate school. Students could pursue post-graduate education in agriculture, architecture, chemistry, education, engineering, home economics, liberal arts, physics and veterinary medicine.
Enrollment in the graduate school was reportedly increasing at a rate of more than 20 percent annually, but API was still a modestly sized school, as we shall see.
