If you have been in McKeldin Library this past week, you may have noticed a new addition in the lobby in front of reference desk. Just last week, we finished installing our “Testudo Through Time” exhibit, which is the first of a series of exhibits that will be put on display in McKeldin in the coming years.
“Testudo Through Time” features a collection of images and objects that tell the story of our mascot’s origin and traces his evolution over time. There is a little bit of everything on display, ranging from yearbooks, to bobble heads, to Terpopoly.
In addition to the two display cases located on the first floor, we also hung enlarged graphics and photos of Testudo in the lounge area on the second floor leading to the portico.
This exhibit will be on display through October, so make sure to stop by and take a look. For even more crazy images of Testudo through history, check out our Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/digitalcollectionsum/sets/72157630057327041/
