The majority of the material that makes up the University Archives at Texas Tech University consists of historical documents and memorabilia relating directly to Texas Tech. Occasionally an item will appear within a collection that does not fit the collecting scope of the University Archives. One of the collections currently being processed is from the President’s Office, dated 1932-1938. Bradford Knapp was president of Texas Tech during this time period. The oddities highlighted here will remain within this collection.
This collection contains an entire folder of advertisements sent to the Texas Tech Bookstore by various publishing houses and suppliers of items a college student might need.
