The History of Linn-Benton Community College is a culmination of five years of research by the author, Albany resident Rosemary Bennett.

A chronological history written in anecdotal format, Bennett calls on her 36 years of experience as a guidance counselor at LBCC, along with countless interviews with students, staff and administrators, to weave a story about the grass-roots effort of local business leaders and community members who came together to change the landscape and culture of Albany. Bennett tells their story–including the opposition they faced and the support they found in unusual places–to bring a community college to Linn and Benton counties. The college they founded has served more than 600,000 students since its inception in 1967.
