History of the Bowling Green Business University written by president J. Lewie Harman, Sr. by invitation of the BGBU students. In his words: "This story is neither a valedictory nor a swan song of the writer or the institution. Neither is decrepit and neither is looking backward."
Facing ever decreasing enrollment the school merged with Western Kentucky University on Jan. 1, 1963. Faculty and students were absorbed into existing and new departments which eventually developed into WKU's Gordon Ford College of Business.
