In 1905 my grandfather, Amos Townsend Claycomb, was accepted for entry at the University of Illinois, Urbana. For this he received a certificate – with a gold seal! Just for being accepted. I think it’s nicer than my degree certificate.
This is a fine little folder of the grades received by Amos Claycomb at the University of Illinois. He graduated in 1909. Please note this should be left on file in the Registrar’s office when not in use by the student. A duplicate will cost fifteen cents.
