Footage of thousands of pivotal moments in Cornell’s history – including lectures by Nobel laureates, visits from world leaders, Cornell presidential inaugurations and classic sports events – are stored in Cornell University Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections. But these film, VHS, audio and even wire recordings are deteriorating over time and their irreplaceable content is in danger of being lost forever. We need your help to preserve these materials – from lectures by Liberty Hyde Bailey and Hans Bethe to Dragon Days and Beebe Lake tobogganing.
Help us to digitize Cornell’s history and make it available for future generations.
