In celebration of Auburn University's 150th. anniversary (sesquicentennial) in 2006, the Special Collections and Archives Department has mounted several exhibits pertaining to Auburn's history.
The three glass cases located on the north side (facing Samford Hall) feature three exhibits. The middle case features "Desegregation at Auburn University" and features photographs, newspaper clippings, and more starting with the arrival of Harold Franklin, Auburn's first African American student, in 1964.
The Special Collections and Archives Department is located on the Ground Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.
