A little known fact about the early requirements of the graduate thesis at the University of Illinois is that students had to design a cover for their submission. This exhibit highlights some of the beautiful and ingenious hand-drawn dissertation covers have been preserved by the University Archives.

"The Art of the Thesis" is curated by Kelly Applegate, Graduate Assistant, Illinois Digital Environment for Access to Learning and Scholarship (IDEALS). Kelly is one of two winners of this year's Graduate Student Exhibit Contest, an event made possible by the very generous support of the late Dr. C. Barber Mueller.
