Exhibition Dates: November 1995 - November 1996
The exhibit Timeline LSU was conceived to be a part of the University’s "Rekindle the Spirit" campaign and designed to illuminate LSU history and student dress from the 1920s through 1970s. Student perspective was emphasized by the inclusion of period student publications, such as the Gumbo yearbook and the Reveille student newspaper in addition to excerpt from oral histories of former students. Scenes for each decade were based on dominate themes in student life and ranged from the first scene in the 1920s that featured a Reserve Officer Training Corp uniformed cadet to the last scene illustrating the landmark period when young women were allowed for the first time in the history of the university to move into off- campus apartments, the 1970s. A purple and gold case included the now defunct freshman male beanies and arm bands, athletic letter sweaters, and other LSU memorabilia. View the virtual scrapbook for this exhibition.
