University Archives Presents Exhibit on History of UT Tyler
In recognition of Archives Month (October), the University Archives and Department of Special Collections (UASC) at the Robert R. Muntz Library is pleased to present an exhibit on the history of The University of Texas at Tyler. Chartered in 1971 as Tyler State College (an upper-level baccalaureate and master’s level institution), The University of Texas at Tyler now offers undergraduate education at all levels and post-graduate studies at both the master’s and doctoral level. The six panels of the exhibit trace the growth of the University as it has moved through its various iterations as an institution for higher education in East Texas. For more information on the history of the University, please visit the University Archives and Department of Special Collections. This exhibit was created by University Archives Assistant, Brandy Monts, under the supervision of the University Archivist, Déirdre Joyce. The UT-Tyler Office of Alumni Affairs assisted the Robert R. Muntz Library in the production of this display. Patrons may view the exhibit in the hallway outside the UASC; it will be displayed indefinitely.
