University Archives contains many UMRA documents.  One of the earliest was created with one of the  most common tools of the trade of the early 1980's. The 22 page, typewritten (remember those?) pdf document is titled: "PDF icon umra_history_1976-1983_by_e_gerald.pdf." It is very interesting reading.  Read online or download a copy.

Curious about how UMRA was started?

Judith Howe (j-howe2@umn.edu) was browsing the University Archives to get an understanding of what UMRA documents had been archived.  She noticed a document she thought might interest all of us.  The 22 page, typewritten (remember those?) pdf document is titled: "PDF icon umra_history_1976-1983_by_e_gerald.pdf." It is very interesting reading.  Read online or download a copy.  We have added a more readable, modern print setting, courtesy of 2017-18 President Chip Peterson, for those who'd rather not work through that much monospaced typewriter leavings.  PDF iconumra_history_1976-83.pdf
