Hispanic Heritage Month display in University Library

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, a display of historic items will be featured in the University Library's Croslin Room for several weeks. It includes a blazer with the Los Tertulianos patch designed by Madaleno L. Hern√°ndez, who also donated the jacket to the Texas Tech University Archives.

Founded in 1964, Los Tertulianos, which means "the Social Gatherers," was the first student organization composed of minority students at Texas Tech University.

The display is courtesy of the University Archives at the Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library.
