University of Florida Archives Moving Image Collection Part of Earl Jernigan's Film Archives. Views of the University of Florida campus taken from an Army helicopter. The film begins with a helicopter on the ground being inspected by campus officials. Passengers load and the helicopter takes off. Less than two minutes into the film, a second helicopter departs with the cameraman. The entire campus is shown, but emphasis is placed on the area around Century Tower. There are also good shots of the stadium. The film would be an excellent source on landscaping in the mid-1950s. Also of interest are the shots taken of the old ROTC building (the artillery barn) and the radar tower. Health Center construction dates this film to sometime around 1956. The grass in the stadium has been removed indicating the film was taken in the winter.
