UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
The UWRF University Archives and Area Research Center is open by appointment only, M-F, 10AM-4:30PM. You can make an appointment online by emailing us at email@example.com or calling 715-425-3567. If you have not been here since before July 2020, we ask that you fill out our annual registration form online prior to your visit. Additional information about the University's COVID-19 response is available here.
The University of Wisconsin-River Falls Archives invites you to contribute your recollections of how you are experiencing the ongoing situation around COVID-19. We are collecting journal and diary entries, emails, photographs, videos, voice memos and audio recordings, digital art, and other digital evidence of how our campus community has been affected, such as being displaced from student housing, working from home, the shift to online learning, social distancing, and self-quarantine. More information about the project, including information on how to participate, is available here.
This list represents a compilation of visitors to the UW-River Falls campus since we first opened our doors in 1874.
The compilation of the more than 300 names was spearheaded by Sociology Professor Emeritus Robert Pionke (1963-1995), who spent more than 100 hours researching the names and dates of the visitors listed here. During his tenure at UWRF, Pionke spent three years on the Concerts and Lectures Committee and was personally responsible for bringing many of these notable visitors to campus during the turbulent Civil Rights Movement.
