Florida Atlantic University Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Florida Atlantic University moved from idea to reality when the 1961 Florida Legislature passed a bill allocating $100,000 to establish the state's fifth public university in Boca Raton. Local boosters, led by banker Tom Fleming, conducted a fundraising campaign under the rallying cry of "Open the Door in '64." The campaign was a success, and FAU welcomed its founding class of 867 students in the fall of 1964. The keynote speaker at the dedication ceremony was President Lyndon Johnson, who called for "a new revolution in education" that would offer opportunity to all Americans.
