The Dr. Jo Ann Rayfield Archives will display 150 years of Redbird memories throughout 2013 to help mark Illinois State University’s Alumni Association sesquicentennial.

The exhibit, Celebrating 150 Years of Alumni Memories: The Illinois State University Alumni Association’s Sesquicentennial, will be displayed during Founders Day festivities on February 21 in Bone Student Center, between the Circus Room and the Ballroom, part of the STATE Showcase.

After Founders Day, the exhibit will be housed in the second-floor vestibule at Milner Library. The exhibit will feature photos, invitations to alumni reunions, items such as commencement tassels, and stories pulled from archived yearbooks and the Vidette. A second display case at Milner will change throughout the year to reflect a new historical perspective on the following themes:

Late February through mid-March: Founders Day
May: Commencement
August: Reunions and organizations
September-October: Homecoming
