University of Miami Archives Online Exhibits
Below are links to thematic digital exhibits curated by University of Miami Archives and featuring resources held in the University of Miami University Archives.
These photographs are of students and campus life from the early 1950s to early 1960s selected from the University of Miami Historical Photograph Collection. The images were chosen for the 'Old Timers' who were attending the 2008 Alumni Weekend.
The 1960s was a decade of countercultural and social revolution. The changing mood of the times as well as the corresponding activities of students is revealed in the rich collection of UM's historical imgages.
This exhibit highlights pivotal moments of desegregation at the University of Miami. The photographs, newspaper clippings and various documents from the University's Archives trace tentative explorations starting as early as the 1950s to the official desegregation on the main Coral Gables Campus in the 1960s.
These photographs and streaming videos document the history of the University from the mid-1920s through 2000. Included are oral history interviews with former President Henry King Stanford, F.G. Walton Smith (discussing the founding of the School of Marine Science), and Harold Long, a founder of the United Black Students.
