C of I students and alumni gather for historic Cruzen-Murray Book Brigade

February 16, 2018

Fifty-one years ago, Bill and Mary Clark were both students at The College of Idaho. It was that year the N.L. Terteling Library first opened and students formed a human chain cutting across campus to move books from the Strahorn Library to their new home.

As it turned out, neither student had been able to attend the first Book Brigade, which moved 70,000 books across campus. But on Feb. 15, 2018, the married couple were on campus to participate in the second Book Brigade, joining over one hundred students, staff, faculty and alumni from the C of I to form yet another chain, this time delivering the final 1,000 books to the Cruzen-Murray Library that opened on Jan. 31.

Cruzen-Murray Book Brigade to echo history on Feb. 15

February 08, 2018

In 1967, a group of students gathered to form a line across The College of Idaho campus, stretching from what is now Strahorn Hall all the way to the N.L. Terteling Library, passing books one by one to what was then the College’s newest library.

Fifty-one years after that historic event, the College will once again gather to recreate that historic scene. At 5 p.m. on Feb. 15, the College’s Alumni Relations team will hold a new “Book Brigade” event to officially complete the transfer of library books from the Terteling Library to the recently opened Cruzen-Murray Library, which opened its doors on Jan. 31 after almost two years of construction.

Most of the walls in the gallery remained blank, as this was only day one of Moore’s ongoing exhibition at the gallery, Brazen Bull: A Natural Mythstory of North America. By the time Moore’s exhibition closes in April, the walls are expected to be completely lined with his vision of combining American historical figures with inspirations directly from exhibits from the College’s Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History. It is a process the gallery’s visitors are invited to watch throughout his stay.
