Her thesis interestingly enough was on the history of the Brockport Collegiate Institute, the original form of our school. Much of her research was done using the rudimentary archives of the time, a closet in the principal's office holding old student registers, catalogs, correspondence books and so forth. Her thesis has been digitized and is now available on our Digital Commons.

A reunion is being planned this summer for alumni who were part of the early Black Student Liberation Front and OSAD in the late 1960s and early 1970s. As part of that a display of black history at Brockport is being worked on in the archives. One of the organizers was interested to learn that there were some black students here before the '60s, as evidenced in this photo of Barbara Wolcott, '55, teaching in the campus school.
