The staff of the UWRF University Archives and Area Research Center created 14 display boards for the kickoff event celebrating the 100th anniversary of North Hall. The event—held Tuesday February 4, 2014, in North Hall—was a Series on Innovation & Excellence program and featured a tour and scavenger hunt throughout the building. The displays will be up in North Hall through Friday, February 7 — UPDATE: they will be up for several weeks. More events celebrating the anniversary will occur throughout the year.

Check out more photos of this event:

The photographs used in the displays are all from the UWRF Archives’ collections. The Archives also plans an exhibit of the original vintage photographs in their display windows on the first level of the Chalmer Davee Library.

Book honoring Kevin Reilly presented to library

Chancellor Van Galen recently presented a copy of An Anthology of Modern Irish Poetry to the library.  Dedicated to Kevin Reilly, president of the University of Wisconsin System from 2003 to 2014, the book honors Reilly as a champion of more graduates, proud Irish American, published scholar in Irish Studies, and devoted connoisseur of poetry.  Reilly is fondly known for reading a poem at virtually every Board of Regents’ meeting.
