Butler University  is pleased to find itself well represented in Indiana's 200: The People Who Shaped the Hoosier State, which was published to celebrate Indiana's bicentennial. Among the individuals selected as those who have "made enduring contributions to the state in its two-hundred-year history" are Butler students, alumni, faculty, and administrators, as well as donors who have contributed so much to the University. This exhibition highlights those individuals selected for Indiana's 200 who have close ties to Butler University and prominently represent the institution.
