During Homecoming we received a large number of donations. This year, we acquired textbooks and class notes from an alumnus during his time as a Palmer student from 1960-1964. Many of these are Delta Sigma Chi Fraternity produced notes and most of his class writings are encased in leather and cloth binders so they are interesting as an artifact as well as the notes within them.
We also received 14 reel-to reel tapes of B.J. Palmer lectures, recorded by the donor’s father in the 1950s. The donor, a Palmer 1980 alumnus, stated, “I hope they can be recovered and shared with future generations.” We will be prioritizing these tapes and other similar B.J. Palmer recordings for the conversion process of old audiovisual material into a digital format, which is a long-term project for the library.
Come visit us to see our newly acquired materials or contact us if you are interested in making your own donation. We are open Monday-Friday, 8:30am-5:00pm. Special Services is located in L103, on the 1st floor of the David D. Palmer Health Sciences Library.
