In middle of busyness prepping for upcoming reunions, Dave Tyler emailed re Angelou's passing and wanting to know about when she was here. Had a NUR444 class this am, but managed to find time to look in Stylus index, get bound volumes, search Jim D. negatives, find images....

He had called and left message, inquiring about digitizing audio materials. I called back, discussed this, and it led into my asking to come visit him sometime after semester ends, share some info re digitizing audio, and do an interview with him. He is not only a Brockport State grad, but was in campus school in late '30s and early '40s. Knew Charles Cooper and his wife, seems very able to recall people and scenes, and enjoy retelling them.
Following up this week and last on these interns, it was a lot of time at certain points, but very much worth it, all did an excellent job.
- Kaitlin Schrimmel organzied and wrote a detailed finding aid to Greek Letter society materials, and a short history of each.
- Emily Lake digitized all 27 audio cassette interviews, 50+ hours worth, and wrote up a list, with brief biography, for each one.
- Sharon Carpenter did a detailed study of the English Club publications and their history.
- Emily Henrich started with a history of the Stylus overall, but then settled on doing the early years, 1914-1928, plus the Normalia, and is turning in a paper on the same.

Sandy Hare visited today, she is the local woman who told me about Camp New Moon being the site the college used in Canada prior to Camp Totem. She brought a wonderful donation, an author autographed copy of MJH's Baptismal Font story, also several other books, and three blue glass miniature vases of MJH. All had been gifts to the mother of a woman Sandy had been friends with many years ago.
