Scope and Content Note
The MU Sesquicentennial touring exhibition was sponsored in part by the Ramada Inn, Legends Automotive Group, Guesthouse Inn of Columbia, and United Van Lines. The Why Tigers section of the exhibition was developed by the Missouri Cultural Heritage Center in the Graduate School and the Office of Research by Howard Marshall and graduate students Debbie Oakson and Toni Prawl.
This Record Sub-Group is divided into three record series. Series One contains ten copy photographs and graphics mounted on foam-core backing dealing with the derivation of the tiger mascot for the University. Most of these photographs are accompanied by captions separately mounted on foam-core backing. Series Two contains six mounted oversize drawings and one floor plan of the exhibit prepared by the MASH Display Group for the University of Missouri. Series Three contains one mounted color poster promoting the MU Sesquicentennial Celebration.
