    We couldn’t do it without them! Our donors make it possible for us to continue to grow our collections and contribute to the research and scholarship of the university. Join us in celebrating them with our new exhibit showcasing items from the collections of those who make it all possible. From medicines of the 1910’s to polka music of the 1970’s, spirit trumpets to mortarboards, something from the interesting and varied lives of those in our community is sure to pique your interest.
