The topic of Georgetown Stories was one of the proposed subjects of interest from last year's class. This year's class, in turn, will suggest a topic for next year's Curatorial students to research and exhibit.

For a preview, listen in on the closing moments with Carol and Flash Williams, class of '66, here:
In that recording you'll get a glimpse of GC and personal history: Flash's recollection of U.S. history, changes in the landscape of the college, the beginnings of the radio station WRVG, their own choices as to making GC their college, and long-standing ties to the college that translated to their daughter coming to GC as well.
From these stories, the students carved out narratives and paired these to objects from the college's Archives.

We hope that you will stop by the Cochenour Gallery this Friday, September 21 from 12-2 pm for the opening reception of the exhibition. Students from the course will be on hand to answer questions and tell about their experience working in the archives, interviewing alumni, and installing the exhibition.
