New in the Visual and Performing Arts Library (VPAL)


One of Dr. Brian Coutts’ recent donations to  WKU Libraries  is the stunning two-volume set, The Story of Underwear. Volume 1 is The Story of Men’s Underwear by Shaun Cole; Volume 2 is The Story of Women’s Underwear by Muriel Barbier and Shazia Boucher. Both books are heavily illustrated with photographs of vintage and modern examples of useful and decorative underclothes, while a scholarly text explains the history and significance of the garments.

The Story of Underwear was listed in Library Journal’s “Best Reference 2010 Resources”.

A featured book review (by Brian Coutts and Therese Duzinkiewicz Baker) about the set was published in the Bowling Green Daily News, Sunday, July 31, 2011.  The books are shelved in the VPAL , call number VPAL REF GT2073 .S76x 2010.

Six images and Ed Givens play by play of the WKU – University of Michigan 1966 NCAA game are now available online. Cazzie Russell & Greg Smith go for the ball and in the end the official calls a foul on Smith. With only 11 seconds remaining, Russell sinks both free throws to take Michigan to a heartbreaking 80-79 victory over the Hilltoppers.  Were you at the game?  Do you have a memory to share about it? 

These images and many others are available in WKU Archives and through KenCat
