Queens History

A complete history of Queens was first penned by Rena C. Harrell, Queens librarian and an avid local historian.This work was later updated and condensed by Mildred Morse McEwen, professor of chemistry at Queens for its publication in 1980. Queens College Yesterday and Today has been digitized and is available for download through the book cover link above right. This book provides a valuable resource for those interested in Charlotte history and the evolution of Queens from a women's college to a modern comprehensive university.
