[Historical Museum located in the Library Building of the University of North Texas]

Date: unknown
Creator: unknown
Description: Inside view of the UNT Historical Museum located on the third floor of the Library Building. The museum started out in the history offices in the Administration Building in the spring of 1925. By 1931 a collection had developed that included manuscipts and documents, arms and weapons from 1840 through the World War, and more. Notice the buffalo head mounted on the far wall. When the museum later closed down, the buffalo was "rescued" and placed upon the wall of a local bar called "The Final Exam" located on Fry Street. The buffalo was called "The Colonel." His head was placed rather low on the wall and many people would hit their heads on "The Colonel." This became known as, "butting heads with The Colonel."
