"The Good Journey: 150 Years of History at St. Bonaventure University" is more than just a historical account. Based on the exhaustive research of longtime St. Bonaventure history Professor Edward Eckert, Ph.D., and edited by the McCarthy family of Buffalo — alumni Bob, ’76, Ann, ’74, and son, Dan, ’10 — the 160-page coffee table book contains more than 250 photos, some dating to the university’s infancy in the mid-19th century.
Copies of the book are available in the SBU Bookstore or online at Franciscan Institute Publications. The book retails for $45.
The marketing campaign for the book — “His Story, Her Story, Your Story” — speaks to the intimate feelings St. Bonaventure alumni have for their alma mater.
“We hope that readers, alums and non-alums, are left with a deeper understanding of how much this truly special place has overcome and accomplished on this incredible 150-year journey,” said Bob McCarthy. “For alumni especially, we hope it takes them back to that four-year snapshot of their lives they will always cherish.”
