In 1959, University President Wilson E. Elkins drew together a Centennial Committee to make arrangements for the campus observance of the centennial anniversary of the Land-Grant Act during the 1961-1962 academic year. This collection is primarily comprised of publications of the Centennial Office of the American Association of Land-Grant Colleges and State Universities, the national oversight group, as well as some correspondence of the university committee. Recognition of the anniversary was incorporated into several events during the year, including the band's performance at Homecoming and Military Day in the spring.

Related files can be found in the Records of the Office of the President, Wilson H. Elkins portion. A preliminary inventory is available online for that portion here.
