Your Story is Our Story
In one sense, the history of Duquesne University is found in the basement of the Gumberg Library, where the University Archives is located. Here you will find a treasure trove of photos, documents and mementos dating back to 1878 and beyond. In another way, it is recorded in books, such as Dr. Joseph Rishel’s The Spirit that Gives Life.
But in its truest sense, our Alma Mater’s history is more than facts and figures, more than names and dates. It lives in the minds, hearts and spirits of all who have touched and been touched by this precious institution—alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff, friends and neighbors.
