In Remembrance of...
















Frequently, in the course of student publication, a significant point is reached that
transcends all others a milestone, which is religious in theme, reverent in regard,
yet sad in remembrance, rest among the endeavors of loyal FAMUans. This
milestone is noted by the '85 Rattler in a concern with FAMU students, teachers
Sand alumni who have passed away during the last academic year.
i ,- Because our theme is devout, it is not necessary to record their deeds or extol
I' I i *unduly the efforts of those whom we remember. It is sufficient merely to note that
4',' i, I: r even in death, they continue to live as FAMUans. We pay our regards to them
Through the medium of the Rattler, so that in the future as we relate to the nostalgia
of the past, they will be a part of that past. We therefore pay homage to these
C "0 FAMUans who, in their lifetime, each in his own way, contributed to the growth of
.. our University.

The Black Archives Research Center and Museum is located in the
oldest building on the Florida A&M University campus. Completed
in 1907 with the assistance of a $10,000 grant from Andrew
Carnegie, this building has been placed on the National Register of
Historic Places.
The purpose of the Black Archives was set forth in an act of the
Florida legislature in 1971 which mandated the establishment of a
repository to "serve the state by collecting and preserving source
material on or about black Americans from the earliest beginnings
to the present."
With grants from the Florida Bicentennial Commission, the
Winn-Dixie Foundation, and the state legislature, the Archives was
formally dedicated and officially opened in 1977. While the Archives
has an excellent Florida collection, it is not limited by state or
national boundaries. Part of its scholarly and cultural responsibility
is the collection of any materials reflecting the black presence and
participation in southern, national, and, as far as possible, interna-
tional history. The holdings and services are extremely varied:
artifacts, manuscripts, art works, oral history tapes, meeting and
research rooms, and a mobile touring museum.
Because a group's history is as valid as the evidence supporting
it, the Black Archives Research Center and Museum diligently
continues to enlarge its holdings, and all interested persons are
invited to support this effort. Donation of materials are guaranteed
not only appreciation but safety, permanence, and use in an
officially authorized archives. Support may also be given through
financial gifts, always necessary and gratefully received.
