Custodial History

These materials had been gathered over the years by several successive chairs of the UNO Department of Art and Art History. The bulk of the materials were transferred to the University Archives in 2015 by Bob Carlson, upon his retirement from that position. In 2021, the UNO College of Communication, Fine Arts and Media transferred a photocopy of the last will and testament of Bertha Mengedoht Hatz to University Archives.
