Legacy Hall EntranceMcMurry Foundation UW Legacy Hall

The McMurry Foundation UW Legacy Hall tells UW's story—from its founding in 1886 through its dynamic present and into the institution's bright future—using both static and interactive elements.

The content is a collaboration between the UW Foundation and the American Heritage Center, the University of Wyoming's repository of manuscript collections, rare books, and university archives.

Inside Legacy HallThe UW Foundation enhances excellence and distinction at the University of Wyoming by securing private resources, delivering superior stewardship, and creating enduring relationships with all who share pride in Wyoming's university.

The American Heritage Center plays an active and creative role in the teaching and research missions of the university, and its mandate is to preserve a clearly defined set of primary sources and rare books—reflecting the written, visual, and audio history of Wyoming, the Rocky Mountain region, and select aspects of the American past—and to make those sources accessible to all  Their wide-ranging collections support both casual inquiry and international scholarship.
