Silent Sounds, Invisible Images: Reanimating the University's Recorded History

The history of the University of Rochester is not just found in texts and photographs. Our past speaks and moves—it marches, sings, performs, inaugurates, and commences in hundreds of audio and visual recordings dating from the early 1920s to the present.

Recorded on albums, audiotapes, films, and videotapes, not only is our history contained by a remarkable variety of formats, but the formats themselves represent a century of the technology of recording, transmitting, and capturing sound and motion.
