      Event Description:

      The “Apollo in the Archives: Selections from the Neil Armstrong Papers” exhibit commemorates the 50th anniversary of the first manned spaceflight that landed on the moon – where Purdue alumnus Neil Armstrong took those famed first steps – and coincides with Purdue University’s July celebration of the moon landing, as well as the University’s sesquicentennial celebration, 150 Years of Giant Leaps.

      As part of the Apollo 11 commemoration on Purdue’s West Lafayette campus, Purdue Archives and Special Collections (ASC) is hosting an open house for the exhibit from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Friday, July 19. The open house will feature:

      • key Apollo 11 documents and artifacts,
      • rare film clips,
      • scavenger hunts for kids (and for those who are kids at heart), and
      • popcorn and light refreshments.

      The open house is free and open to the public and ideal for children of all ages.

      On Saturday, July 20 — the golden anniversary of the July 20, 1969, manned moon landing — Purdue University will host several Apollo 11-related events, which are listed at www.purdue.edu/apollo11/events/index.php.

      From 9 a.m.-noon (July 20), Purdue ASC will host additional exhibit viewing hours, as well as scavenger hunts.

      Purdue Archives and Special Collections is located on the fourth floor of the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Education (HSSE) Library in Stewart Center.Contact Information:
