Digital Exhibit Credits
Emeriti Professors James Clifford, Michael Cowan, Virginia Jansen, and Emeritus Campus Architect Frank Zwart conceived the idea, wrote the text, and selected the images and texts in the exhibit. Shelby Graham is the director of the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery and provided invaluable support to the curators as they assembled the exhibit.
Online Exhibit Design and Construction
Ann Hubble and Rachel Deblinger edited the original curators' text for online presentation. They added structure for readability, links to images and other materials in the library's digital collections, created the campus development map, and added videos from the campus history archive.
Special Collections and Archives
Archivist Mary deVries has been arranging and describing papers and photographic material in several campus history collections. She provided research assistance to the curators for many of the materials for the exhibit. Irene Reti also contributed valuable research assistance and the oral histories she's conducted as part of Special Collections Regional History Project provide the primary source material for many of the quotations in the exhibit.
