Exhibition of Fresno State’s history through photos debuts Sept. 1

The 100-year history of California State University, Fresno will come to life through an extensive display of photographs at a Centennial exhibition in the Henry Madden Library opening Wednesday, Sept. 1.

The exhibition runs through Sept. 27 at the Leon S. Peters Ellipse Gallery on the  second floor of the library’s Table Mountain Rancheria Tower.

A detailed timeline highlights Fresno State’s evolution  through the decades from a state normal school training teachers for the region to a 21st-century university offering training in scores of fields through eight academic colleges and schools.

Showcased are some of the best and most-treasured historic photos from the University Archives, as well as memorabilia that highlights Fresno State’s enduring strong connection with the community.

The exhibit is free and open to the public. Library hours can be found at www.csufresno.edu/library/about/hours.php.  Centennial events are listed at the official website, www.fresnostate100.com.
