National Archives Month

In recognition of national archives month UK Libraries' Special Collections presents, UK Sports, an exhibit featuring photographs, memorabilia, and video documenting various sports at UK over the last century.  The photographs in the exhibit are taken from the Louis Edward Nollau Nitrate Photographic Print Collection (1998ua002).  Nollau served as head of the Engineering Department at UK from 1918-1939.  Due to his interest in photography, Nollau was the first "official" campus photographer; he photographed individuals, buildings, events and scenes on campus from 1904–1955.

The exhibit, curated by Special Collections graduate assistant Sheli Walker, can be viewed in the lobby of Special Collections, King Building, through October.
