Special Libraries Contribute to Fall 2013 Northwestern Magazine

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Fall 2013 issue of Northwestern Magazine is now hitting the newsstands, and NU Library is once again well represented--this time mainly by University Archives.

A full-page article on page 11 highlights our extensive collection of student and alumni scrapbooks with a colorful collage of ticket stubs from basketball, football, dance performances, and theatre events at Northwestern from the year 1911. There is also a link to the online version of the upcoming "Past, Paper, Scissors" exhibit, where you can view pages from Otto Graham's scrapbooks, explorers' scrapbooks in the Humphrey Winterton Collection of East African Photographs, as well as a host of others--some quite surprising! 

The article "Top Cats: Northwestern's Greatest Athletes" on pp. 32-41 also includes about a dozen athlete pictures from University Archives. These are mostly black-and-white historical photographs, though there is the occasional colorful poster or ticket stub. 

Finally, an article on tailgate parties at Northwestern features a half-page photo of students or alums tailgating from 1973, also from Archives.
