This documentary souvenir is published in conjunction with the centennial celebration of the Department of Sociology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, March 3-4,2000. Copies for distribution during the centennial festivities are provided, in part, courtesy of the George Elliott Howard Institute for Advanced Sociological Research. The archival and documentary items selected for inclusion in this special supplement to Sociological Origins are, of necessity, culled from a much larger pool of potential items, many of which could easily be included in such a compilation with equal justification. All materials reproduced herein posses unique historic value, and it is hoped too that some may inspire and amuse. For outlines of the history of sociology at the University of Nebraska, Howard (1927) and Hertzler (1929) provide instructive, first-person introductions. With this preamble, this keepsake supplement is submitted for your perusal and enjoyment. On behalf of Sociological Origins, I take this opportunity to extend the heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the future to the Department of Sociology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, to the faculty, to the students, and, especially, to my fellow alumni.
