Raymond Tyvand Papers, 1921-1966
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The Raymond Tyvand Papers consists of a green scrapbook with a University of North Dakota seal on the front cover. In the bottom right corner, “Raymond E. Tyvand ‘24” is written in gold. The scrapbook primarily consists of dance invites, as well as dance cards. Several pages were left blank that were outlined for things such as “Faculty and Campus,” Student Hall of Fame,” and “Favorites.” A few blue ink splotches appear on the signature pages. The scrapbook also contains a few newspaper clippings pertaining to many student organizations located on the University of North Dakota campus. Several pages were left blank towards the end. However, the succeeding pages were filled with programs such as commencement exercises. This manuscript also contains several photographs of animal anatomy such as a tortoise embryo. Photographs of dinosaurs can be found amongst these as well.

A folder attached to the inside of the back cover houses several other documents: a letter from Hugh Colm, a paper explaining policies at the University of Chicago medical college, a couple congratulatory letters, an honorary diploma in biology that has been signed but otherwise left blank, newspaper clippings, and a photographs of Kappa Rush 1927-28 and of an elderly man with a mustache. Other loose papers were found stuffed between the pages of the scrapbooks. These consist mainly of letters of congratulation and condolence for the death of Tyvand’s father.
