Mississippi State soon will officially serve as host to a presidential library–one of only five universities in the nation to share such a distinction.
Ulysses S. Grant Association President Frank J. Williams will formally announce the decision of the organization’s board of directors to designate the Ulysses S. Grant Collection at MSU’s Mitchell Memorial Library as the Ulysses S. Grant Presidential Library.
MSU President Mark E. Keenum recently received a letter from Archivist of the United States David S.
