Temple celebrates the birthday of founder Russell Conwell

 Every February we’re reminded of how the spirit of Russell Conwell lives on.


On the 179th birthday of Temple University’s founder, Rev. Russell Conwell, the university takes a look back at Conwell’s continued legacy and the values it imparts to students. From imagery of owls and diamonds to Temple’s mission to provide opportunities to students of all backgrounds, Conwell’s work continues to have a meaningful impact.
