The 200th anniversary of Colby's 1813 founding provided opportunities to reflect on the College's remarkable past. Highlights of that history—the agony of near failure and the triumph of emerging as one of America's great liberal arts colleges—are captured in a history timeline (above) and a documentary film (at right). With the theme "In Their Footsteps," Colby's bicentennial celebrated past achievements while focusing on the future as it began its third century.
