As part of inaugural festivities leading up to the installation of President Timothy Hall as the ninth president at Austin Peay State University, Woodward Library will have two displays chronicling the University's past.

The first display, “The History of Austin Peay State University,” will be available for viewing from April 1-30 in the Woodward Library.

Showcasing the development of the University since its inception in 1927, the display provides a graphic portrayal of the Austin Peay Normal School (1927-43), Austin Peay State College (1943-67) and Austin Peay State University (1967-present).

The display was created by two APSU employees: Gina Garber, digital services librarian and archivist, and Carol Keller, resources management assistant.

The second display, titled “The Office of the President 1929-2008,” will be exhibited from April 3-30 in Woodward Library.

Created by Garber, “The Office of the President” portrays the history of Austin Peay presidents from John S. Ziegler (1929-30) to Timothy Hall (2007-present). Archival documents, including The All State and photographs, have been reproduced to share the University's rich past with the community.

Both displays are open to the public. For library hours, go to http://library.apsu.edu/library/hours/default.htm
