American Public University System’s history began with the founding of American Military University on June 11, 1991. The university has grown exponentially since its beginnings, from having 5 graduates in 1995 to over 100,000 students today. The Richard G. Trefry Archives has a collection of items from the early days of AMU, from graduation photographs and programs to university newsletters, to curriculum advertisements. The Archives contain an array of items that document the growth of the university, from the once distance learning school for military officers to the online university it is today.
