For archivist Kim Butler, preparing for the College’s Sesquicentennial has meant drawing on a collection of ever-expanding resources to uncover new voices and stories. “We’re always getting more materials for the College’s Archives and your knowledge of certain event or story can change when you find out more information,” she explains. “A new voice can give you a different perspective. We’ve recently been given the personal papers of President Rall by his family and resources like this add new insights.”
