Sharing the Past, Building the Future: UMBC at 50
Through December 15
Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

The forces that contributed to the founding of UMBC — from emerging need triggered by the post-World War II baby boom to a higher education ideal conceptualized by Chancellor Albin O. Kuhn — converged on September 19, 1966 with the commencement of the first classes at the new university.

The exhibition tells some of the many stories of the university’s exciting beginning and continuing development through items selected from UMBC’s University Archives, including photographs, documents, objects, books and ephemera.

Gallery hours:
Monday through Friday: 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Thursdays until 8 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 12 – 5 p.m.
