1930s film footage of the college

This is the oldest motion picture footage known to exist of the college. The footage was shot on 8 mm film by Emmett Costich, a student at what was then called "The Training School" a K-8 school where Brockport teaching students helped to educate the children. Emmett used his dad's camera to capture several events, including Brockport's Color Day celebration, a cookout with Charles Cooper (the namesake of Cooper Hall) and a National Recovery Administration parade. This is a 3-minute highlight clip from the more than 40 minutes of footage in our archives.
