This November CBU celebrates its151st anniversary! To learn more about our history since 1871, check out the CBU History Collection, which contains a growing digital collection of images from CBU's Brother I. Leo O'Donnell Archives. The 1000+ images in the digital collection represent only a tiny percentage of what is held in the Archives, but you will find photos, documents, and objects from each decade of CBU's existence.

You can also find Memphis history within the collection, like this photo of a refugee camp from the time of the 1878 yellow fever epidemic.
