Growing Up Green: 1941-2015

A black and white banner. The name of the exhibit, Growing Up Green, is on the left in white letters. To the right of that is a man with headphones that cover his ears.

The years 1941-2015 were a time of tremendous growth and transformation for UNT. In these 75 years we have gone from a small teachers college to one of the largest research universities in the country.

Throughout all the changes that have occurred, the characteristics that define the university— determination, creativity and diversity—have grown stronger over time. This exhibit is a look at some of the people and events that shaped the modern history of UNT.

This exhibit draws from the collections of the University Archive as well as many special contributions from alumni and friends. We wish to thank the following contributors to this exhibit:

  • Georgianne Burlage
  • Mike Cochran
  • Mark Coomes
  • Jim Cooper
  • UNT Department of Mathematics
