MORGANTOWN, W.Va. —  WVU Libraries and the West Virginia & Regional History Center will provide a crash course in history to celebrate the university’s sesquicentennial as part of this year’s West Virginia Day program June 20.

Festivities begin at 9 a.m. with a continental breakfast reception in the Milano Reading Room in the Charles C. Wise, Jr. Library. Ron L. Lewis, professor emeritus in the WVU History Department, will speak at 10 a.m.

Following the keynote, a new exhibit, “Flowing Outward and Beyond: West Virginia University” will open in the WVRHC’s Davis Family Galleries. A selection of documents and artifacts from the center’s archives will illustrate the university’s founding and early years. WVRHC staff will distribute commemorative posters to all in attendance.

The program continues in the Downtown Campus Library Atrium. Stop by to get a slice of birthday cake and to meet the speaker.
