XU Archives displays athletics history in fall library exhibit
September 16, 2009

     NEW ORLEANS — The history of athletics at Xavier University of Louisiana is being showcased by Xavier Archives during the fall 2009 semester in a third-floor exhibit at the university's Library Resource Center.
     The glass-encased display is called "Rush for the Gold — Athletics at Xavier University 1925-2001" and it features team and game photographs, publications, trophies and other memorabilia from XU's intercollegiate and intramural teams and spirit groups.
     A "did-you-know?" fact for post-baby boomers: Xavier played intercollegiate football through 1959. The Gold Rush played home games on campus where the library now stands.
     XU associate archivist Irwin Lachoff compiled the display with assistance from sports information director Ed Cassiere.
     There is no charge to view the exhibit. Library hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to midnight, Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to midnight.
