Featured MINDS@UW-River Falls Item of the Week

This week’s featured MINDS@UW-River Falls item is the 1962 Meletean.  The Meletean is the yearbook of the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.  It was first published in 1912 and it was last published in 1969. It resumed publication briefly from 1991 to 1992.  Meletean is Latin for Badger, which is the Wisconsin school mascot.  The class of 1962 is celebrating its Golden Jubilee Reunion this year with events on May 11th and 12th.
