Jack Simms will provide a photographic history of Auburn University on Thursday, January 18 at 3 p.m. in the Special Collections and Archives Department, located on the Ground Floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library.
Photographers have documented the history of Auburn University and these images illuminate the university's past in a way that textual documents cannot. Jack Simms's slide-illustrated program draws upon decades of experience in the selection and description of images that best depict the history of Auburn University through photographs.
Simms received a bachelor's degree in Journalism and English from Auburn University in 1949, headed the Department of Journalism at Auburn from its founding in 1974 to 1992, and collaborated with Mickey Logue to produce Auburn: A Pictorial History of the Loveliest Village.
The lecture is part of the Spring Semester's Discover Auburn series, sponsored by the A. U. Libraries, the Center for the Arts and Humanities in the College of Liberal Arts, and the A. U. Bookstore. For more information call 844-1732.
