In honor of Old Dominion's 75th anniversary, the University Libraries are presenting both lobby and Web site exhibits celebrating campus life and ODU history through the development of campus buildings. The Web exhibit can be seen at www.lib.odu.edu/exhibits/odu75thanniversary.

The exhibits combine photographs and other materials from the University Archives housed in Perry Library's Special Collections. The Web exhibit includes audio files from interviews conducted with former faculty and administrators, including Joseph Healy, director of the College of William and Mary's extension program in Norfolk, sharing his memories of the very first days in the old Larchmont Elementary School building.

Other buildings featured in the exhibits are: Rollins Hall, Foreman Field, Spong Hall, Technology Building, Webb Center and Kaufman Mall.

Employees who would like to share their memories of a particular building or classroom at ODU may send comments to Frances McCraw at fmccraw@odu.edu.

For more information about the exhibits contact Karen Vaughan at kvaughan@odu.edu. Back to top
