This month's haul features a wealth of IU Folklore student research and newly acquired scrapbooks that reveal aspects of campus life in the not-too-distant past.
This publication started as the Alumni News-Letter of Indiana University and was possibly the first official university periodical dedicated to communicating campus news, events, and initiatives to alumni.
Explore local and regional traditions through the research of IU folklore students from the 1960s through the early 2000s. There are a number of different subjects represented including music and performance, foodways, material culture, legends, rituals, jokes, and superstitions.
The American Forum for Global Education (1986-2008) provided professional development, curriculum materials, lesson plans, and resources to educators for teaching students about global/international history, culture and sociopolitical issues.
IU alumna (BS 1953, MS 1961) Margaret Albersmeyer Werling’s scrapbook contains photographs of campus buildings, the 1953 NCAA championship campus celebration, Little 500, the Fall Carnival parade, and commencement as well as tickets and programs from football games, IU Auditorium events, dance cards, and clippings related to campus life.
The scrapbooks (1994-2016) recently added to the GLBT SSS collection include newspaper clippings, programs, memorabilia, and fliers that highlight GLBT issues and events on campus, in the local area, in the state, and in the nation. Also included are photos from the GLBT SSS office and a scrapbook commemorating the 20th anniversary of the office.
