Germany: The 450th Anniversary of the University in Marburg (1977)

This is an old FDC, but I think it fits perfect into my universities-collection. The Philipp University of Marburg (German: Philipps-Universität Marburg), was founded in 1527 by Landgrave Philip I of Hesse as one of Germany's oldest universities, dating back to a Protestant foundation. It was the main university of the principality of Hesse and remains a public university of that German state. It now has about 25,000 students and 7,500 employees, making Marburg, a town of 72,000 inhabitants, the proverbial "university town". Marburg is home to one of Germany's most traditional medical faculties.
