PULLMAN, Wash. – Students and staff of the Foley Institute at Washington State University will distribute free copies of the U.S. Constitution 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. Friday on Glenn Terrell Mall in celebration of Constitution Day.
The U.S. Constitution was signed on Sept. 17, 1787, but because Sept. 17 falls on a Saturday this year, the Foley Institute is distributing the Constitution Sept. 16.
In addition, Marilyn Von Seggern, WSU’s government information librarian, has created a virtual exhibit highlighting the four major periods related to the creation of this foundational U.S. document: the Constitutional Convention; the states’ ratification process; the initiation of the new government; and the incorporation of the Bill of Rights into the new Constitution.
Within each time period, Von Seggern has compiled numerous links to resources within the Holland and Terrell Libraries, as well as online links from a variety of sources. For more information, go here.
