This tape is composed of short film clips from various years that were spliced together on one core. There is no common theme or purpose to the clips. Footage includes football games, homecoming, and campus events. Many of the clips cannot be identified. The first and longest clip involves homecoming events. The year is unknown, but the appearance of J. Hillis Miller places it in the 1948-1953 time period. Also noteworthy is a convocation of some sort that may be Miller's inauguration.
