    “Fascinating History Hidden in the SU Archives”

    Presenters: Meg Mason, University Archivist, and Vanessa St.Oegger-Menn, Pan Am 103 Archivist and Assistant University Archivist

    The Syracuse University Archives is dedicated to preserving records documenting the University’s history. Founded in 1959, the Archives is a treasure trove of papers, photographs, and memorabilia documenting the schools and colleges, campus landscape, people, and events that have shaped SU. The Archives contains items as diverse as our earliest photos of the Hall of Languages to retired Otto uniforms; and original handwritten lyrics for the Alma Mater to Ernie Davis’ jersey. The collections highlight important events and individuals in the history of SU such as Jesse Truesdell Peck’s journal entries about the founding of the University; a seat from Archbold Stadium, removed by fans after the final game on November 11, 1978; memorial items from the Pan Am Flight 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster Archives; and original sketches for the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, designed by alumnus Lorimer Rich.

    The Archives is home to the history of all things Orange and we invite you to join Meg Mason, University Archivist, and Vanessa St.Oegger-Menn, Pan Am 103 Archivist and Assistant University Archivist, as they share images and stories about some of the unique items found in the Syracuse University Archives.

    Breakfast will be ready at 8:00 a.m. and the presentation will begin at 8:30 a.m.  Pre-and post-talk gives plenty of time to meet your fellow alumni, connect, and network.

    Price for the event is $15 at the door and includes breakfast, event, and gratuities. There is ample free parking.
