STARKVILLE -- Mitchell Memorial Library's latest exhibit pays homage to the cowbell, one of MSU's most beloved traditions. 


Located on the second floor of the library, the exhibit will run throughout the months of September and October. 


Informational text highlights the history of the cowbell tradition, as well as histories on several individual cowbells. Items on display include double ringers from the University Archives collection, personal cowbells from the library's faculty and staff, and a sample of the cowbell collection of Sid Salter, Director of University Relations at Mississippi State University. Photographs by Town and Gown intern Loren Gambrell showcase cowbells around campus.
