We often get asked the following question, "What famous people have visited Mankato or Minnesota State University, Mankato over the years?" Honestly, we find out about new "famous people" who visited all the time and we expect that those discoveries will continue. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 1961 visit to Mankato, Minnesota, was one of those extra special discoveries. MSU Archives digitization efforts over the past decade has revealed, and will continue to reveal, more of our hidden history that we've been able to share with the world through ARCH, University Archives Digital Collections.
