This exhibit showcases just some of the many images of Minerva found in the University Archives. Many of the earliest images are from the seals used on diplomas. The images seemed to vary almost yearly early on and then changed with every name change. In addition to seals found on diplomas, images from letterhead, decals, yearbooks, programs, and course bulletins are included. Note the variety in the images varies greatly and in some cases such as the year 1961, there are multiple seals in use at the same time!
