October is American Archives Month

4 10 2009

The mission of the Michigan State University Archives & Historical collections is to preserve the history of the University and make it available for researchers.  Founded in the fall of 1969, the University Archives & Historical Collections (UAHC) has materials dating back through all of MSU’s history.  This year American Archives Month coincides with the 40th anniversary of the Michigan State University Archives & Historical Collections.

To celebrate American Archives Month, the MSU University Archives & Historical Collections is holding a trivia contest that is open to MSU faculty, staff and students; MSU alumni; and the greater Lansing community.  The theme of the trivia contest is MSU in 1969, the year of the archives’ creation.  The contest will end at 5:00pm on Friday, October 30.  Three winners will be chosen at random from among the correct entries and will be notified the following week.  This year’s prize is a 2009 Spartan Trivia Champion t-shirt.  Winners will be notified the week after the contest ends.

The questions are available online or as a PDF document.

Good luck and thank you for playing!!
