  • USI Memorabilia Collection

    IMG 0990The University will be celebrating its 50th anniversary next year and the USI Memorabilia Collection in the University Archives and Special Collections strives to keep the visual history of USI alive through the collection and preservation of items, like t-shirts, buttons, mugs, jerseys, and banners, just to name a few.  Some of the unique items in this collection include: a set of eight soda cans celebrating the 1995 men’s basketball national championship, t-shirts from one of the university’s most popular event, the Eagle Gran Prix from 1975 to 1997, the original robe worn by the grand marshal at commencement ceremonies from 1971 to 1989, and the ceremonial ball and chain of independence, clipped off of Archie’s ankle, on April 26, 1985. Items within this collection reflect events, organizations, and the campus growth from 1965 to today. 

    The collection is unique and the items within are in high demand for displays and events both on and off campus.  Next year much of the collection will be on display around campus as well as the Evansville Museum, filling display cases and lending a visual record of USI’s growth from a branch of Indiana State University to the independent university it is today. 

    We here in the archives would like to see our collection grow as much as the university continues to grow and are looking for donations of ISUE and USI materials.  So the next time you’re cleaning out a closet, attic, or garage, think of the USI Memorabilia Collection in the University Archives and Special Collections here at Rice Library.
