Freddy Falcon in the University Archives

An old Freddy Falcon costume has been transferred to the University Archives from Student Life.  Freddy’s head—awaiting his custom-made archival storage box—sits atop the archival boxes holding the rest of the costume.  This photo, by University photographer Kathy M. Helgeson, provides a good view of the University Archives and Area Research Center’s lobby area.Freddy costume in lobby, March 2014
