Professor Emeritus Jack Lane Pens New Book on Rollins

Professor emeritus Jack Lane ’06H has published Rollins College Centennial History: A Story of Perseverance (1885-1985), telling the inspiring story of Rollins’ history—from its beginnings as a little college on a sparsely settled Florida frontier to its heralded status as an agent of change. 

This is the story of an institution’s century of life. As with all life, Rollins’ character was formed by remarkable successes as well as adversities. Yet it not only persevered, but was strengthened by those adversities and well prepared to meet whatever challenges it faced in the future.
