October is Archives Month and in Kentucky the theme is Athletics in Archives in honor of the 2012 Olympics. This year’s poster features images of sports being played and enjoyed by Kentuckians of all ages. The WKU photo shows children participating in a soap box derby race down College Heights Hill.
The WKU Archives website is featuring links to Hilltopper related items housed here in the Kentucky Building. The collections are open to researchers most Mondays – Saturdays 9 to 4. The online inventories and digital objects are available 24/7 through TopScholar.
Archives throughout the Commonwealth capture and preserve records of all types of athletic activities. Check out collections near you in person and those available online year round.
