October is American Archives Month!

Did you know that October is American Archives Month? Visit our archives display in the CDC atrium October 5-16 and discover unique pieces of St. Kate’s 110-year history!  We'll also be tabling October 13th.

Have you ever wondered what a gym uniform looked like in the 1940s? The yoga pants and leggings we wear today would definitely shock our fellow Katies!

Now we can access our student transcripts with the click of a button. Take a look at one student's paper transcript booklet from the early 1900s. Anyone interested in taking a course called Domestic Science?
Feeling groovy? Pages of a yearbook from 1973 will show you the differences (and similarities) between us and the women who called St. Kate's home over 40 years ago.

From recent history, we have Dew Drop Bop memorabilia and a DVD of Spring 2014 Commencement. Just think, some day your photos and memories may be a part of the St. Catherine University Archives!

Watch Twitter and Facebook for more highlights of St. Kate's history during October. For more information on the history of St. Catherine University, visit the Archives online or in person in Room 62 of the Library, open Monday- Friday from 9:30-4:30.
