A.T. Newman Indian Artifacts

More than 200 Native American artifacts have been on  loan to the university since 1963, providing a rich resource for classes in American Indian Studies and history. A group of students recently demonstrated how all disciplines have much to gain, and much to offer, by studying the items and creating a new exhibit in Davies Center.

Documents offer 

glimpse to the past

Blueprints and other documents dating back to 1914 were donated to the university after being discovered by an Eau Claire construction company. The documents provide information about regional landmarks, job expenses and payroll information — giving scholars, historians and other researchers a more intimate look into the company's history and its impact on our area. Learn more.
