Anyone who traces the history of Western higher education back to its beginnings will be struck by one fact: the vast majority of European universities and colleges owes their existence to the favor and support of powerful masters. The city of Linz was not given this luck. She found no patron who would have enriched the cultural life of the city with a university. From the sixteenth century on, there were always attempts on the part of the city to establish a high school, which, however, was only briefly crowned with success. After the Second World War, it was the representatives of the city and the state who advocated for a university in Linz with a focus on social and economic sciences due to the changed economic structure and the low academic quota of Upper Austria. In 1962 it was time - the parliament decided to build the university. On the outskirts of Linz was in the summer of 1964 the groundbreaking ceremony. The most important part of the university, the lecture hall and the institute wing of the social sciences, economics and law faculty were completed in time for the beginning of the winter semester 1966/67. The newest university in Austria thus began operations, a worthy occasion for the publication of a special postage stamp. The brand image shows the coat of arms of Linz University
