Heritage Room needs your history

Col. Charles O'Sullivan

A walk through the U of M’s Heritage Room is like taking a step back in time to a quieter and gentler era: yearbooks, a fraternity scrapbook, a vast array of photographs, lettermen jackets and sweaters, diplomas, a football from the 1958 game against Tennessee Tech and a 1918 letter from Andrew A. Kincannon, the school’s president at that time, are just a few of the objects present. Recent additions include an old microscope with State Teachers College engraved on its barrel and an illuminating lamp, both of which were found and donated by U of M chemistry tech supporter James J. Aschberger.


“I would hope that others – employees, alumni and friends – who have memorabilia from our University’s history would step forward and add their collections to what we already have,” said alumnus Ronald “Butch” Alford, former creative services director at the U of M and a member of the U of M Association for Retirees’ board.

Any historical items are welcome and prospective donors should contact Ed Frank, special collections curator, at 901/678-8242.
