"Reminiscences of Fairmount College" is Dr. Walter Graves' account, written in 1938, of the creation of Fairmount College (later Wichita State University) in Wichita, Kansas in 1895, continuing until 1906 when he resigned his seat as a member of the Board of Trustees. Graves portrays himself as an early, vocal advocate in urging the Wichita Association of Congregational Churches to back the creation of a new college in south-central Kansas.
