Temple adopts new graphic identity

    This spring, Temple is unveiling a new logo. Don’t worry, the “T” stays.
 
   
The new logo, which combines the familiar Temple T symbol with a more contemporary presentation of the words “Temple University” is part of a comprehensive, institution-wide graphic identity system being adopted by the University. Rollout of the logo system is expected to be completed by July 1.
   “As Temple’s stature and visibility rise, our logo must stand for all that Temple is and aspires to be,” President David Adamany said. “We have to make the most of each individual impression. Our new graphic identity standards will help us capitalize on the tremendous reputation associated with our name and the Temple T.” [more]

This Week in Temple History
March 4, 1999

    The Temple Times reported that the Temple University Law School had been renamed The James E. Beasley School of Law to honor the nationally recognized trial lawyer and alumnus whose gift to benefit the School of Law was the largest endowment in the school’s history. In addition, Watts Walk was renamed Beasley’s Walk.
    Beasley, a World War II veteran who collected and flew fighter airplanes, was considered one of the outstanding trial lawyers in America. He graduated from Temple Law School in 1956.
    Beasley died on Sept. 18, 2004
