1970-Tulane Student Made Film
Color film with sound, shot by an unidentified student in the early 1970s. It appears to be a rudimentary promotional film about Tulane University. The film begins by featuring some of the landscaping around Gibson Hall, then sound begins at 01:15 with a student laconically saying, "Tulane's okay. It's a university." Another student describes the meaning of the word university, and an administrator gives a profile of Tulane University by reading from the university’s catalog. The film continues with short monologues by individual professors describing the status or nature of research at their specific department or school at Tulane, recorded in a variety of locales around campus. Departments and Schools profiled are Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Philosophy, Graduate School of Business Administration (Peter Firmin), Biology, English, Theatre, Music (Peter Hansen), Art, and Law (Joseph M. Sweeney). The clips are interspersed with candid snippets of students at play, in classes, and in the cafeteria. The film ends with another student casually saying, “Y’all drop…on by.” Single-perf. Color reversal. Magnetic stripe soundtrack in some areas. B-wind. Ektachrome EFB stock with 1970 Kodak date code.
