Playboy in the Archives?!

Yes, even Special Collections and University Archives has a Playboy connection.

In 1963, a young Hugh M. Hefner judged the Moccasin Beauties, an annual beauty contest in which the winners were announced in the yearbook. After “careful consideration,” Hefner selected Carol Fraser as the winner.

Read Hugh Hefner’s letter to Jeff Carr, editor of the 1963 Moccasin.

Read up on UTC’s history online with the first 36 volumes of the Moccasin yearbook in our Digital Collections.

Lupton Library Says Farewell

At forty years of age, Lupton Library has begun its last semester as heart of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus. Opened on January 21, 1974, the library was one of the first campus buildings planned after the merger of the university into the University of Tennessee system in 1969. The library cost $5.4 million to build and spans 116,000 square feet. When it opened, the library served a campus of 4500 students. Today, UTC enrolls over 11,000 students. Special Collections & University Archives is hosting an exhibit that looks back at the library, as well as and some of the persistent urban legends about the building and its collections.
