University Archivist Portia Vescio will review the good, the bad, and the ugly of the first seven presidents in UNM's history from Elias Stover through James Zimmerman. The early leaders had fights with the Governors, Regents, and Faculty on a regular basis, but they also created the foundation of what UNM is today. Learn more about who these men were and what their legacies are.

This presentation will also feature conversations with UNM President Garnett S. Stokes and Alumni Association President Chad Cooper, and former UNM President Richard “Dick” Peck and Alumni Association Immediate Past President Alexis Kerschner Tappan, discussing the unexpected circumstances they have faced during their time in office.
