Exhibit Documentation files

26/08/08  Exhibit Documentation Files, 1966-1996.  3 linear feet

These files document exhibits mounted or maintained by the University of Northern Iowa Museums and Collections.  The files include exhibit guides, photographs, labels, correspondence, and research relating to short term and long term exhibits.  The amount of documentation varies considerably from exhibit to exhibit.

The University of Northern Iowa Museums and Collections sent this collection to the University Archives in February 2010.  The material was arranged in rough chronological order when it arrived in the University Archives.  Consequently, University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee graduate student intern Dana Wallace maintained that order, with appropriate improvements, during processing.
