Sesquicentennial events included a lecture series that illuminated topics and events essential to understanding the history of Auburn University.
The Sesquicentennial Lecture Series grew out of the university's Sesquicentennial Committee.
In addition to course information, the catalogs list names of faculty members and students, admissions criteria, expected costs, and rules of conduct.
Photographs of notable people, places, and events in the history of Auburn University, from the late 19th century onwards.
The Systems Department of the Auburn University Libraries videotaped the lectures, digitized and edited them, and designed this website for their online presentation.
This collection includes a scrapbook containing newspaper articles, photographs of productions, programs, and a collection of posters.
“Footlights”, the Auburn University’s first stage company, began in 1913 but ceased to exist beyond the First World War.
In 1919, the “Auburn Players” revived the university stage company and developed the original social club into the Auburn University Theatre Department which has grown into an integral part of the university with an emphasis on professionalism in instruction and performance.
Distributed to every household in the community and displayed at the post office and city hall and in churches, schools and storefronts, the posters provide a tool for building constituent support, recruiting, and promoting the community, and reminding everyone of their town’s assets, opportunities and economic strategies for advancement.
The posters become support material for grant requests, partnership building and promotion.
