Prescott Campus History

The Prescott Campus History Collection, part of the Hazy Library's Special Collections, chronicles the history, development, and activities of Embry-Riddle's western campus.

Highlights of the collection include student publications such as The Echo yearbook (first published in 1982) as well as student newspapers.

The following extract from a 1980 issue of The Pioneer (predecessor to today's Horizons) focuses on a mid-air collision that occurred over Prescott's Love Field in the days before the airport had a control tower. Fortunately, both planes were able to land safely, and no one was injured.
