Historians have determined that Baylor’s 1909 celebration was likely the first collegiate homecoming event in the nation. Now, Baylor Homecoming is part of a Smithsonian traveling exhibit that will tour the country from 2014 to 2021.
The photo you see above, taken during the 2010 Homecoming Parade by Baylor Photography’s Matthew Minard, was selected for display in an exhibit called “Hometown Teams,” part of the Smithsonian Institution’s “Museum on Main Street” series of traveling exhibitions. Five copies of the exhibit will tour small towns for the next seven years, along the way giving countless young museum visitors a glimpse of life at Baylor.
Sic ’em, Baylor Photography!
