Scope and Contents of the Materials
The Arthur H. Fisher papers (1916-1955; 1.4 cubic feet) contain artifacts, certificates, a diploma, photographs, and miscellaneous items from the years Arthur Fisher spent as a Purdue University student from 1916-1920. There are some items that Fisher obtained after his tenure as a student, such as alumni loyalty certificates. All of the artifacts are contained in three acid-free boxes and acid-free folders. This collection would be very valuable to anyone interested in student life at Purdue University during the early 20th century or the Purdue Military Band.

While at Purdue he was a member of the Agricultural Society, the Purdue Athletic Association (P.A.A.), and the Purdue University Military Band. The 1920 Debris lists his hometown as being Ossian, IN. No further information is known at this time.
