In celebration of the 125th Anniversary of Auburn women on campus, Cathy Clark of Auburn has provided the university with the artifact of a coed bracelet estimated to date back to the 1930s-40’s.  In the center of the design are the engraved words “Alabama Polytechnic Institute Founded 1856.” This API bracelet was discovered at an Auburn community yard sale.
