America was dominated by the Vietnam War, Civil Rights movement, the 60s also saw the assassinations of US President John F Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Cuban Missile Crisis, and truly out this world moments with Apollo 11’s first man to land on the moon.


The following images are a small, representative group of photographs, articles, and documents from the University Archives which houses the life and times of the university from the 1850s to the present.
