Centennial Celebration Collection, 1964-1990
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The materials included in this collection will aid researchers looking to dissect the intricate planning processes and sheer amount of inter-departmental cooperation and effort required to celebrate the University of North Texas's 100th anniversary. This collection includes plans and meetings leading up to the centennial; advertisements, publications, event information, and photographs created in the midst of the celebrations; and reports, correspondence, and certificates written after the centennial had passed. Researchers will discover meeting minutes and project plans covering the minutest details, to large-scale committee reports spanning the entirety of the celebrations.

Furthermore, within this collection is an entire series dedicated to the systematic editing process of UNT’s book, Down the Corridor of Years. Multiple versions of the publication, book notes, and even order invoices allow scholars to conceptualize the process of creating a comprehensive history of a university. Finally, certificates of recognition and congratulation as well as proclamations and resolutions included in the oversized materials provide a glimpse into the respect and support the University of North Texas garnered for reaching such a historic milestone.
