A University of Oregon Libraries
During Spring term 2004, the exhibit cases in the
Knight Library feature an exhibit on the sport of
baseball, which has been called "America's National
Pastime." The exhibit highlights materials available
in the library's colections and in the University
archives, and features a research project undertaken
by one of the authors along with a history of varsity
baseball at the University and a tribute to baseball
fans. The exhibit was put on on April 2, and will
be up until June.
The background music playing in the exhibit corridors
is from the original soundtrack recording from "Baseball,"
a film by Ken Burn and the motion picture soundtrack
from "Little Big League".
This web site is still under development and will
have material added over the coming days.
