UI Library Research Colloquium to highlight the historic Moscow campus
The University of Idaho Library Research Colloquium series will present "U-Idahome: the Moscow Campus as Place" at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16, on the library's main floor. The presentation coincides with 2014 Homecoming Week activities on the Moscow campus.
The colloquium will feature D. Nels Reese, University of Idaho associate professor emeritus of architecture, and Garth Reese, head of the UI Library's Special Collections & Archives, in a discussion of the history of the Moscow campus. The talk will incorporate a visual tour of the digitized UI Campus Photograph Collection.
Nels Reese has a long-standing connection to the Moscow campus. He arrived in 1957 as a student and returned in 1979 as director of facility planning, where he initiated the planning process that led to the current University of Idaho Long Range Master Plan. In 1987, he joined the UI Architecture Department faculty and taught for 21 years before retiring in 2008. He continues his involvement, serving on the Moscow Historic Preservation Commission and leading tours of campus and down town Moscow.
The University of Idaho Library Research Colloquium series was established to bring librarians and researchers together to discuss a common research interest for the benefit of the campus community.
