Scope and Content of Collection
This series consists of commemorative items from events that celebrated university milestones. These events include the cornerstone
laying for the Carnegie Library in 1902, Heritage Day in 2000, and the San Jose State University's 150th anniversary in 2007.
The Carnegie Library cornerstone was set in 1902. Although the event for the Carnegie Library is not directly related to the
University's history, the Library's location at San Fernando and Fourth Street became property of the University and the location
of subsequent University libraries. Included in this series are business cards and signatures of those that attended the
cornerstone laying ceremony. A similar cornerstone laying for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, a joint-library venture
between San Jose State University and the city of San Jose, led to the Heritage Day celebration on October 20, 2000.
This series is arranged chronologically.
