Happy 100, ECU!

In the coming months, this site will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 1909 founding of East Central University by enjoying virtual cake (see image at right) and posting notes on literary achievements of the past century.

Any and all in our ECU English and Languages community are welcome to contribute to this project. If you'd like to weigh in, just e-mail me ( an item for the relevant time period and I'll do my best to find a home for it in this webspace in a timely manner.
