Lead, Innovate, Serve: A Visual History of the
American University of Beirut’s First One Hundred and Fifty Years
represents a collaborative expression of love for AUB in celebration of its
150th anniversary. This elegant collection of images effectively walks the
reader, year by year, through a selection of key elements and moments in the
University’s history. The photographs are organized chronologically into five
sections entitled “Founding 1862–1901,” “Taking Root 1902–1948,” “Academic
Renaissance 1949–1970,” “Turmoil and Resilience 1971–1996,” and “A New
Millennium 1997–2016.” The sections are accompanied by short essays relating to
each period of the University’s history and by profiles of AUB’s presidents and
numerous history makers who have contributed to the impact that the American
University of Beirut has had both in Lebanon and beyond. We believe that Lead,
Innovate, Serve will be treasured by all who have entered the gates of the
