August is almost over and the start of the fall semester is about to get underway once again. Before all of that gets going, let’s take a step back and enjoy some more highlights from our “Archives on the Air” series.
Let’s rewind Volume 7…
Episode 145 – Looney Tunes – Michael Maltese Papers
Charlie Chaplin and Yosemite Sam had one thing in common: a mustache.
Episode 58 – Win a Trip to the Chicago World’s Fair – Montgomery Wards Records
Last week we honored Montgomery Wards because it marked the anniversary of the production of the very first Montgmery Ward catalog. Back in 1933 they gave out 200 trips to children to visit the World’s Fair. The trick was convincing other folks to order products from them.
Episode 45 – Predock’s Centennial Complex – University of Wyoming Communication Records
As you drive into Laramie from the east, you can see the beautiful Centennial Complex — it’s where our offices and archives reside, along with artwork from all over the world. Did you know we almost had a completely different building design?
Episode 40 – Wyoming Boy Makes It Big In Hollywood – Wally Wales Papers
Once a cowboy, always a cowboy is a motto we often use at the University of Wyoming. However, there’s a difference between ‘film cowboys’ and ‘real cowboys.’
But what happens when you’re someone like Wally Wales and you’re both?
The purpose of the Archives Rewind series is to highlight episodes from our “Archives on the Air” segment that airs on Wyoming Public Media.
“Archives on the Air” can be heard on Wyoming Public Radio Monday through Friday at 11:50 am, and 6:50 pm or online on Wyoming Public Media’s website.
