On Saturday, Oct. 18, two popular experts on University of Rochester history will highlight some its most significant milestones and retell some of its best stories in “Icons and Images: The University’s History in 12 Artifacts.”

The event will be from 4 to 5 p.m. in 207 Schlegel Hall, on River Campus, and it is open to the community.

Paul Burgett ’68E, ’72E (MA), ’76E (PhD), vice president and senior advisor to the president, and Melissa Mead, the John M. and Barbara Keil University Archivist and Rochester Collections Librarian, will jointly provide the storytelling using images and artifacts brought from the University Archives for the event.
