University Archives and Special Collections in Dupré Library is filled with amazing treasures. Author Ernest Gaines’ handwritten manuscripts. A uniform jacket worn by a cadet soon after the school opened in 1901. A photo of the first faculty members – all eight of them.

The Archives is celebrating its 50th birthday.
