This exhibition was curated by Archival Services of University Libraries in commemoration of The University of Akron's Sesquicentennial.
The book created to celebrate The University of Akron's sesquicentennial, Hail We Akron!: The Third Fifty Years of The University of Akron, 1970 to 2020, is now available for pre-order.
A celebratory collection rather than a chronicle, Hail We Akron! gathers memories, impressions and opinions of alumni, friends, stakeholders and donors about Akron’s hometown college since its achievement of state status.
Edited by Mark Auburn, Hail We Akron! is a collaboration between dozens of Zips, Archival Services of University Libraries, The University of Akron Press and The Myers School of Art's designxnine student design studio.
