As part of its sesquicentennial celebration, The University of Toledo is teaming up with the Toledo Lucas County Public Library to offer the community a free, public lecture and exhibit downtown.
“Celebrating Toledo’s University: 150 Years of the University and the City,” a lecture by Barbara Floyd, former university archivist and author of “An Institution for the Promoting of Knowledge: The University of Toledo at 150,” is from 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, in the Large Glass Meeting Room at the Toledo Lucas County Public Library Main Library.
The free, public event will focus on how the city and its residents contributed to making the University a success and how the University contributed to the development of the city.
The UToledo Ward M. Canaday Center’s exhibit commemorating the University’s sesquicentennial, “Faith, Vision, and Hard Work: The University of Toledo, 1872-2022,” also can be experienced at the Main Library of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library.
The display, which is available for viewing at the downtown library until May 8, features UToledo’s historical timeline, reproductions of photographs and documents following the institution’s trajectory from the 1872 Articles of Incorporation through today and trivia.
The full exhibit in the Canaday Center on UToledo’s Main Campus runs until August. Viewing hours at UToledo are 8:30 a.m. through 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
