|In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the integration
of the University of Mississippi, both Archives & Special Collections
in the J.D. Williams Library and University Museums are calling all
those who preserved historical materials relating to the 1962 integration
to consider donating their materials to the University. Items such
as letters, photographs, films, artifacts and oral histories
relating to the integration and riot, will be valuable additions to
the collections of the Museums and Special Collections. Please help
us add to our lasting archive of this momentous event.
Items will be considered for donation throughout this memorial
year. Exhibitions are planned through the year to which these artifacts
will be helpful.
To contribute oral histories, please contact Susan
Glisson, director of the Institute for Racial Reconciliation, at
