Nobel Prize Held in UASC Collection Featured in USask News

Henry Taube's Nobel Prize, held in the University Archives and Special Collections is featured on USask News.

Over 35 years at the University of Saskatchewan (USask), Patrick Hayes has had the distinct pleasure of personally perusing a plethora of memorable manuscripts, historic heirlooms and cherished collections. But the day he first held Dr. Henry Taube’s (PhD) Nobel Prize medal in his hands in 2011 was unlike any other.

“That was special,” said Hayes, USask’s archives technician in the University Archives and Special Collections department. “I remember when I was unpacking the box when the shipment arrived and I took it out to the reading room and I was showing everybody and nobody that I showed it to that first day had ever seen one. We have a lot of unique things, one-of-a-kind things, but that one was beyond any of the other ones that we have."
