Remembering the Past: Artifacts from the University Archives

Four display cases throughout the building hold artifacts from the history of the University.

 

Slides




The other case in the main lobby holds the class gift from 1904.  This plaque was nailed to a Maple tree outside Campbell Hall. When it came time to cut down the tree in 1962, a letter writing campaign saved the plaque that had grown into the tree.
In the main lobby, one case holds an example of early Educational Technology, glass slides used by Professor Lewis A. Robinson, (circa 1912).

A candle lantern was used to illuminate the images for viewing.
