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.
