A student interning at the village museum emailed about a large map of downtown Brockport they have at the museum, seeking assistance scanning it so she can enlarge and enhance the image. I have contacted her, she will be in this week, and we'll work with it on the big book scanner.

Gary (1972) is being featured in a K'scope article, was asked for images from his student years, he was on basketball team as well as other activities. Found a few in Sagas, looked in those recently recovered from Allen, but no luck.

Another project last few days; drafting a proposal for two sidewalk plaques for the Allen plaza renovation. Have talked to Duncan Chase, sent draft to Mary Jo. Nice to think of this happening, and hopefully will serve to promote further such efforts.
Emily Lake has started an internship in which she is digitizing the audio cassettes of oral history interviews done over the years. Some by me back in the early '90s, some by others. Many valuable interviews with alumni and emeriti from Normal school era etc. Have helped her to get the Roxio software installed and running, and is going well, several interviews done already.

Great bit of coincidence with an intern this spring working on the history of the literary publications; John Nelson '55 (239-217-0228) called to say he did the drawing used on the cover of the Spring '54 Vistas, and he has the original drawing, framed, sitting in a closet! He is going to be back in the area in May and wanted to see if I was interested in having it for the archives, which of course I was.
