"The Birth of a University"

In 1962, filmmakers documented the origins of the young university.  Special Collections obtained the film and narrative script, but did not have a soundtrack.  Working with the script and footage, librarian Matt Torrence provided a 1960s-era "booster" voice, while librarian Andy Huse matched the voice-over with the footage.  Thus, "Birth of University" was reborn 45 years after its creation.
