Alumni House archives committee

Met with Cathy Applebee and Karen Owen yesterday. They are the two members of the Alumni House archives group still around. (The committee was actually disbanded c2016.) The committee was started back in the very early '90s after the Alumni Association had acquired Alumni House, the former residence of the presidents thru Tower, restored it etc. I worked a lot with George Rich '54 on getting things organized, accessioned and so forth. He and I traveled together some to archives workshops being held back then by a now long defunct historical association.

Anyway, their document archives may end up coming here, as the space is wanted for other things. The house may become less of a house museum, more of a center for Advancement...
