Rewinding for Volume 4…

Episode 92 – Downtown Cheyenne – Verna Edicott Papers

We’ve noticed that Cheyenne is one the happening places to be as of late thanks to the great events put on by the City. But it would be interesting to know what it was like in the 1910s and 20s

Episode 113 – Can You Dig It? – Ernest Tidyman Papers

A new “Shaft” movie, staring Samuel L. Jackson comes out this week. So we thought it was appropriate to highlight our “Archives on the Air” episode featuring the Ernest Tidyman papers. Tidyman wrote the John Shaft novels and co-wrote the screenplay for the original film version.

Episode 117 – Dorm Rules – E. Luella Galliver Papers

Since there will be new dormitories coming to campus in the coming years, we thought a throwback to the Archives on the Air featuring the Luella Galliver’s Papers was appropriate. Galliver was the Dean of Women from 1932 to 1946.

Episode 154 – Sock It To Me – Dan Rowan Papers 

Another recent popular release relevant to our collections is Netflix’s Still Laugh-In: The Star Celebrate. It was made in tribute to the 50th anniversary of the classic sketch-comedy series Rowan & Martin’s Laugh In and is available on Netflix now. The AHC is home to Dan Rowan’s papers. Rowan created Laugh-In alongside his comedy partner, Dick Martin. Sock it to me!
