Kyle Munson takes a look at the collection of papers and personal artifacts recently donated to UI Libraries by UI alumnus and legendary newsman Tom Brokaw.
The Brokaw Collection represents a behind-the-scenes glimpse into his decades-long career as a respected NBC journalist, including everything from leather-bound calendars to homemade valentines.
The university is thanking Henry Tippie, namesake of the university’s Tippie College of Business, on his 90th birthday for his many decades of generosity.
Tom Brokaw, a noted journalist whose career has spanned over five decades, announced that his personal papers will be preserved at the University of Iowa Libraries. The collection, including Brokaw’s brushes with some of history’s most fascinating and frustrating events, will become available to students and scholars beginning in 2017.
