The Lindenlink Show: Paul Huffman talks about archives, myths vs. fact about LU history


Matt Hampton, Editor-in-chief

The Lindenlink Show is a podcast covering news on Lindenwood’s campus and in the community, and featuring interviews with different guests each week.

In this episode, Matt Hampton talks to Paul Huffman, the university archivist for the past 12 years. Hampton asks Huffman about common rumors about Lindenwood’s history, including the tunnels under campus, which Huffman has visited. They talk about ghosts on campus, which Huffman has not seen, but he did unsuccessfully try to revive a ghost-related university tradition.

They also talk about the menagerie of items Huffman has collected in his office, including a 3-foot fiberglass shark head.
