Description

This part of the online collection includes images of past presidents of the university, as well as a photograph of Dr. Duncan Lyle Kinnear, author of The First 100 Years; A History of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, which was used for the "A Short History of Virginia Tech, 1850-1974" section of the exhibit. It also contains pdfs of biographies of university presidents, captured from the original anniversary website.



This collection includes materials included in an 1997 online exhibit created for the 125th anniversary of the university. The original exhibit was a series of webpages with images, digitized text, maps, newspaper clippings, and more. In the course of migrating the exhibit to a newer platform, digitized items were moved to this collection. In some cases, text-based pages were captured as pdf files and included in this collection.
