Mementos from historic oaks to be displayed in library archives

The Special Collections and Archives Department of Auburn University Libraries will host an exhibit of messages and other artifacts left at the Auburn Oaks in the days following the announcement in early February 2011 that the trees had been poisoned. The exhibit, which will run Feb. 14 until A-Day weekend in April, is located on the first floor of the Ralph Brown Draughon Library and will be open during all regular library hours.

The artifacts gathered at the trees slated to be in the exhibit include many get-well wishes for the trees from small children and adults alike and tributes from current and former students. These artifacts take all shapes from simple cards and signs to the victory-celebration signature item - rolls of toilet paper.
