Green & Gold Day

Kerry Gotham, alumni affairs, stopped by asking about a date for a celebration of the school, like maybe first ever date of classes. Discussed history of school with him, showed him first minute book of 1840s etc. He liked the Sept. 1841 dates when they met to establish the Brockport Collegiate Institute.

According to Dedman and the first catalog, 1842, the first day of classes was December 1, 1841.
