The Cofrin Library’s Area Research Center has a “Throwback Thursdays” post today on its Facebook page. Remember when UW-Green Bay had a marching band that performed at Packers games? Did you know that the Center has a collection of Packers-related editorial cartoons? Check the post at https://www.facebook.com/uwgbarchives.
This week’s Throwback Thursday post on Facebook includes a rare photo of a red “Phoenix B. Bird.” (Actually, the shaggy looking costume in the faded photo has a coppery orange hue.) It looks to be part of a trading card promotional series for UW-Green Bay basketball. Take a look at https://www.facebook.com/uwgbarchives.
The Archives and Area Research Center people have posted another ‘Throwback Thursday’ item of nostalgia at their Facebook site. It brings back the old lower-case uwgb logo from UW-Green Bay’s first few years of existence in the 1970s. See https://www.facebook.com/uwgbarchives.
The thing is, these vintage chairs are either still in use at UW-Green Bay or only recently banished to a previous century. The Cofrin Library’s Area Research Center has posted a grooving group photo of vintage UWGB furniture in this week’s Throwback Thursdays feature, at www.facebook.com/uwgbarchives.
Call it the Summer of … Star Trek (?) The Cofrin Library’s Area Research Center and University Archives office have a new entry in their ongoing “Throwback Thursdays” site. Since summer session 2013 started this week, the current Throwback Thursday post is about summer session 1969 … including a reference to a Star Trek course.
Last week, our friends in Archives and the Area Research Center generated a lot of traffic to their Facebook site with their first ever “Throwback Thursdays” posting. They pulled some photos out of storage of the old Lucy Stone women’s center at UW-Green Bay. This week’s topic: the old days of long lines, course-registration binders and paper registration. See more.
Today we launched a new facebook feature for the Archives. We will have “Throwback Thursdays.” (Today’s post is about something new in 1972: The Lucy Stone Center.) Each Thursday will feature a post of photos, trivia and tidbits of campus history. Visit www.facebook.com/uwgbarchives.
