Autumn slide of Hartwell

G Cervone looking for original slide of autumn Hartwell shot from '96. After hours going thru Jim Dusen slides found a close match.

Stylus & Fiction

Sarah Cedeno, adjunct in English and short story author, uses items from local news as starting point for fiction. Came in to browse stories from the Stylus re Hartwell Hall, ghosts, renovation. Has also been using the Brockport Republic. Was handy to have the new book scanner, she could look at bound volumes, scanned items she wanted, merged into a file, she was very pleased.

Philosophy & Ethics of Sport Seminar

Cesar Torres asked about this some time ago, and I sent him an article from a campus newsletter. He is researching it more in depth now, as their 40th anniversary is coming up. The seminar or symposium started at Brockport in the early '70s, and is still active today. It was connected with the Philosphic Exchange in the early days. I need to look for more, and build a file on this.

At initial planning meeting for class of '63 reunion today one member, Don Kwak, mentioned that hockey at Brockport started in his time here, and that he had given a file of articles and documents on it to the archives. I checked after they left, we do have it, and am having student assistant go thru it, id pages where we can get better copy from Stylus etc. and will then scan and post on DC.
