The passing of Miami President Emeritus Dr. Phillip Shriver marked the end of an era at Miami University. In memory of Dr. Shriver, the staff of the University Archives has put together a small exhibit featuring personal items donated over the years. Exhibited materials include a pair of toy drumsticks from Shriver’s childhood, notes and exams from classes taken with leading American historians Arthur Schlesinger and Allan Nevins, and a draft syllabus and exam from Dr. Shriver’s Miami History course. The exhibit is located in the reading room of the Miami University Archives
The Archives is located in the old Withrow Court locker area, directly across from McKie Baseball Field. There is a single, outside entrance on the north side of the facility. The archives is not directly accessible from the Withrow Court building.
Beginning May 7, the Archives summer hours will be 8am-4pm Monday thru Friday, and by appointment. Everybody is welcome to visit! If interested in visiting or have a research question contact Bob Schmidt, University Archivist at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513.529.6720
