American College Celebrates Its 75th Anniversary

The American College, Bryn Mawr, Pa. celebrated its 75th anniversary last week.

Founded in 1927 by Solomon S. Huebner, the college says it is the nations oldest and largest academically accredited educational institution devoted exclusively to financial services.

Among the activities that took place during the two-day celebration was the rededication of the MDRT Foundation Hall on the campus.

Constructed in 1972, the MDRT Foundation Hall is the academic center of the college and houses the library, faculty offices and office of the president.

To date, $1.3 million has been raised for the renovation of the hall from MDRT members around the country. “When the renovation is completed, this building will be a world-class, technologically advanced facility that is better prepared to handle the challenges of the new century,” said Samuel H. Weese, president and CEO of the American College.

Also taking place last week was the 25th Frank M. Engle Lecture in Economic Security, which featured a discussion by Jeremy Siegel, from the University of Pennsylvania, and Robert Shiller, from Yale University, on the topic “Which Way for the Stock Market?”

In the photograph above, over 240 of the Colleges employees stood together on the lawn of the campus to form a giant 75.
