The University of Georgia’s Hargrett Rare Book & Manuscript Library will be hitting the road this summer with a traveling exhibit of materials from the UGA Athletic Association Archive. Jason Hasty, UGA Athletics History Specialist for the Hargrett Library, will bring historic materials to several public libraries in east and central Georgia.“This is a great chance for everyone to see materials – uniforms, equipment, photographs – that represent UGA’s rich athletics heritage”, said Hasty. “I’m especially excited that this travelling exhibit will feature a mix of older artifacts as well as some items donated from our recent student-athletes and teams.”
The travelling exhibit will be free and open to the general public. Materials will be on display on the following dates and locations:
June 4 (Mary Vinson Memorial Library, Milledgeville)
June 5 (Monroe Public Library)
June 12 (Augusta-Richmond Public Library, Augusta)
July 24 (Greensboro Public Library)
August 23 (Washington Memorial Library, Macon).
The Hargrett Library is one of three special collections libraries that are part of the University of Georgia Libraries. It is housed in the Richard B. Russell Special Collections Libraries Building on the campus of the University of Georgia.
