BC Archives
Welcome to  “This Month in BC History” a feature from the BC Archives.

This month’s history-making articles are taken from various South Florida newspapers and BC student publications and reflect the language of their day. They provide a first hand account of BC’s history and a record of our growth as an institution.

The articles have been compiled from the BC Archives Scrapbook Collection (1960- circa 1985) (Record Group 300). If you are interested in learning more, please feel free to contact me.
