40th Anniversary of the Museum of Education

The Museum of Education celebrated its 40th anniversary on September 29, 2017 with the first public display of President Barack Obama's letter and signed photograph (of the Presidential Letters Collection) and the opening Museum's 40th Anniversary Exhibition.
The four image galleries (on the lower right of this webpage) represent exhibition panels from the Anniversary display cases.

Opened to the public on September 30, 1977 by William W. Savage, the former dean of the College of Education, the Museum of Education has taken an active role to preserve, transmit, rectify, and expand the values and beliefs that define education in South Carolina, the Southeast, and the United States. During the past 40 years, the Museum of Education has served as an archives, assisting researchers from throughout the United States and Europe, and as an experimental research unit of the College of Education, staging exhibitions and organizing programs oriented for professional educators, preservice teachers, and the general public.

The Image Galleries, to the right, depict the panels for each individual display case of the 40th Anniversary Exhibition. These include The History of the Museum, Congratulations to the Museum, Remembrances of Progreams and Projects Past, and Museum Publications.
