The Purdue Artifact collection (1880-2000, 8 cubic feet) documents different historical aspects of Purdue University. Each artifact has been given a unique number and then organized by size, and sometimes format, in boxes. The items are of various sizes in various formats, but all have a Purdue connection. Some examples are a salt and pepper shaker set, handkerchief, window decals, and silver tea spoons.
This is an active collection and will be frequently added to on an ongoing basis
