Thom Higgins (1950-1994) attended the University of North Dakota from the summer of 1967 (as part of a program for gifted high school juniors) until March of 1968, when he was suspended for his involvement in the underground newspaper “Snow Job.”


This collection features a variety of items relating to his time at UND, including both underground and official university publications, as well as performing arts and other campus activities. There is also a set of newspaper clippings including a piece about his suspension and a recounting of his life up to 1977.
