Sharing the Past, Building the Future: UMBC at 50

Exhibition: September 15 - December 16, 2016

All of the forces that contributed to making UMBC-- from emerging as a need triggered by the post-World War II baby boom to becoming a higher education ideal conceptualized by Chancellor Albin O. Kuhn-- converged on September 19, 1966 with the commencement of the first classes.

This exhibition tells some of the many stories of the university's exciting beginning and continuing development through items selected from UMBC's University Archives including photographs, documents, objects, books and ephemera.
