Music for 1911 Old Home Week

Someone had stopped by while I was out, at some point MJG had gotten them a copy of the sheet music from Brockport's 1911 Old Home Week. I dug it out from the map cases for them, and then took it as a chance to use the new Bookeye scanner; scanned and posted them to the DC!

Department names

Kim was asking about a department name for a thesis done in '74; it was the earlier name for today's Communication dept. Many departments have changed names over the years; could be a useful project to do a name authority sort of list for them.

Class of '67

A member of class of '67 was let in archives by other staff, was looking for info for their 45th reunion. Gave him my card, said would scan materials for him.


Conservators working on the statute of Prometheus & campus architect were looking for photos of Prometheus under construction. Had many after finished, a few negatives showing a little of the fountain statues in construction, but not P. A quick skim thru Jim Dusen unproccessed photos didn't turn any up, altho may be some there somewhere. They did find some of finished statue that were of interest, scanned for them.
