1976 year book photo

Grad of '76 lost her original 8x10 senior photo. Had to tell her I don't have the original negatives, but I could, and will, scan the yearbook image and send her as high quality image as I can get from that.

Radio Club

Radio has a long history at Brockport, going back into the 1950s when the "Radio Club" was formed. In 1964 the call letters WBSU were assigned, but it was still a closed circuit broadcast. The FM transmitter station started in 1981.

The station has a web page with a history section that was written by Warren Kozireski, who has been with the station in one way or another since his student days here! Below is the club from the 1964 Saga yearbook.

Drake/Allen in 1976

Allen and Drake were completed and occupied in the mid 1970s. This aerial shot shows some features no longer present. One example is the original pedestrian bridge over the tracks; that first bride was not covered, and more steeply pitched than the present covered bridge. It was a little treacherous in bad weather! Notice too the field on the east side of Drake being used as a parking lot, no Special Olympics fountain, no LAB...

New acquisition!

Just was given this postcard dated 1909. It is group shot of the school faculty on the steps of the old Normal school. The man on the left in the front is Charles MacFarlane, Principal 1901-1910. The younger man in the middle is Fred Belland perhaps, a teacher of physical education and other subjects. Much to determine, an exciting donation!
