Info from Archives and Government Documents

1. Archives

When we visited our Archivist and asked her about the cost of parking tickets early in the university's history, she said that she didn't know but would find out. And she did!

She says, "The first mention of parking fees was in the 1963-1964 student handbook. The fee was 25 cents and it was refundable if plate was returned in good condition. The next year it went up to 30 cents."

You can see the student handbook from 1963/64 online: http://archive.org/details/studenthandbook196267wilm. Click on "Read Online" and enter search terms in “Search Inside.”
