Templeton donation to library

Templeton donation to library

Starkville residents E.O. and Betty Templeton (r) recently provided funding to the MSU Libraries to purchase newly released U.S. census data. Accepting the gift that will provide microfilm records and indices from the 1930 census are Lynne Mueller, reference librarian, and George Rent, associate provost. To ensure privacy, copies of the original census forms are released after 72 years, making 1930 the most recent year available.
