Help Share Voices from Auburn's History

The Special Collections and Archives Department of the Auburn University Libraries is home to thousands of rare and fragile artifacts. Included in our collections are hundreds of pieces of “legacy media,” like the reel-to-reel tapes used for the recordings of the Horizon Lecture Series.

This Series, which was organized by the Auburn University Senate and ran from 1965 to 1979, hosted speakers like boxer Muhammad Ali, comedian Dick Gregory, senators Edward Kennedy and Barry Goldwater, CIA director William Colby, journalists George Plimpton and David Frost, and Black Panther leader Eldridge Cleaver, among many other notable and diverse speakers that visited campus. 

This Tiger Giving Day, our goal is to raise the funds to purchase the equipment needed to digitize these tapes and make them accessible online for researchers and the public. We would love to have your support for this project, and any amount you give will enable us to preserve these incredible recordings and make them available to all.
