Current and past WSU Pullman students have probably walked by the Nature Boy wall statue on the side of Holland Library thousands of times during their WSU careers. Have you ever wondered about the history behind this massive wall statue? Anna Wheately, WSU Libraries' Interim Director of Development, recently worked with Manuscripts Archives and Special Collections to create an exhibit on the history of this campus landmark. The exhibit was covered by the WSU News Center in a recent article.
