1 Diploma and 3 Photos

These items were a bit easier to find for the UFO Team. Seeing as their size made them somewhat difficult to store, they were one of the first things we looked at. They are also quite heavy and very fragile to handle, so care was taken when turning them over for the photography sessions.

The diploma was issued to Benjamin Richard from the Broken Bow Business and Normal College. He completed the "Commercial" course of study in March of 1905.

Unique Marks:
The glass is cracked and missing in the bottom left corner.

The Broken Bow Business and Normal College was located in Broken Bow, Nebraska. Lloyd E. Epley was the Principal. Photos of the College and its students can be found here.
