Description:

Celebrate Homecoming with the University Libraries!

Experience and relive the history of University of Arizona Homecoming through "One for the Ages: A Homecoming Exhibition," on display from Oct. 21 – Nov. 19 in the Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd.

Since 1914 – when the first Homecoming was held – the UA has celebrated Wildcat pride, honored alumni, and cheered the football team to victory through this annual tradition. The exhibition brings Homecoming history to life by showcasing material from Special Collections including scrapbooks from the early 1900s; memorabilia of Homecoming events; photographs of football players, band members, and cheerleaders; and original footage from 1950s Homecoming parades and football games. 

"One for the Ages" was curated by Special Collections and members of the UA Student Chapter of Society of American Archivists (UASAA), a UA student group dedicated ensuring the identification, preservation, and use of historical records continues into the future.
