The Special Collections and Archives Department of Auburn University Libraries is hosting an exhibit commemorating 100 years of the Auburn University College of Education. The exhibit, located on the ground floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library, is open during all regular Special Collections and Archives hours and is free to the public.

The Centennial Education Exhibit follows a chronological organization and features education pioneers Deans Zebulon Judd and Truman Pierce. Among the artifacts on display is the accepting letter sent to President Thach from Judd when he joined Alabama Polytechnic Institute as department head; a 1915-16 course catalog; and hand-written trustee minutes on the education department from 1914. The transition to Dean Pierce and the artifacts displayed reflect his contributions to Auburn University and the transition that happened in the 1960’s with civil rights in public education. The exhibit concludes in our more modern era, with the Keystone publications and Auburn University’s influence for the future in education in 2015 and beyond.

The exhibit is scheduled to run through the end of 2015. While taking in the Centennial Education Exhibit, visitors are also welcome to view other exhibits currently running in RBD Library, which include the Auburn Oaks Exhibit on the first floor and the World War I Commemorative and Hampton Roads Peace Conference exhibits on the ground floor.
