The federal government, under the auspice of the Morrill Act, endowed the state of Nebraska with 90,000 acres of land to create a state agricultural college. The profit from land sold allowed for the creation of the University of Nebraska. Yet the correlation of federal land and physical university is not one of spatiality, but rather of ink and paper. This thematic archive collection traces the origins of the University through laws from Congress to the Board of Regents.

During the mid-1930s, a revolution took place on campus. One that wasn't violent, or even really demonstrated. One that would result in a building being built on campus for one purpose: to bring the students of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln together under one roof for any activity desired.
A detailed look into the Nebraska Cornhuskers' first road trip outside the midwest for a football game. They traveled to Portland, Oregon to play the Oregon State Aggies. The game marked the first time that the Nebraska football team traveled outside the midwest to play an opponent. The game was organized with the help of the Cornhusker coach, E.J. Stewart. Stewart was a first year coach at the University and stressed the need for not only the football team, but all the sports to schedule tougher opponents in order to gain national respect, even if the risk of defeat was higher. Due to Stewart's, along with others, influence on athletics at Nebraska, a legacy of pride and confidence began to grow. The trip to Portland to take on the Aggies was just the first step.
This exhibit tells the story of the recall and censorship of the 1912 Cornhusker resulting from Chancellor Avery's objections to the content and attitude of many of the cartoons featured in the yearbook.
