Skidmore history book coming soon...
Remember candlelight vigils for Martin Luther King Day? Remember the Black-White Coalition takeover of President Palamountain’s office? Remember RISEN or SOAR?

If so, you won’t want to miss Make No Small Plans, the forthcoming Skidmore history book, researched and written by Mary C. Lynn, professor of American studies.

Jammed with facts and photos, personal stories and recollections, Make No Small Plans will be “required reading” for alumni of all eras, as well as Skidmore parents, Saratoga residents, and history buffs at large.
