VENANGO CAMPUS 25th ANNIVERSARY CLARION UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA Oil City, PeaaftylYuU 16501 THE BEGINNING - In the spring of 1961, college enroll- ments were burgeoning. Clarion became the first PA. State College to receive permission to establish a branch campus. Oil City leaders, eager for a higher education facility, launched a successful $350,000 fund campaign and purchased a 62- acre site overlooking the Allegheny River on the West side of town. Construction began July 1, 1961 on a classroom- library building. Director of Admissions Walter Hart is shown with the first student admitted to Venango Campus, Marcia Reagle of Franklin (above, left). With an enrollment of 134 students, classes began in about eight rooms on the second floor of a downtown Oil City building at Sycamore and Seneca Streets (above, right). The faculty of five including Administrative Head (from 1961 to August 1972) Dr. Russell L. V. Morgan (standing at rear left in the photo below) were E. Rupert, N. Donachy, I. Sumner, H. Dennis, G. Wollaston, and N. Shea. The classroom-library building, named for Sen. Richard Frame in 1977, was ready in January 1962.
