Voices from Macalester’s Past

October 3 2016

President Rice Inauguration October 2, 1959

Some of the college’s historical reel-to-reel audio recordings, digitized by the Macalester College Archives, are now available in DigitalCommons. Listen to DeWitt Wallace in 1963 tell a story about the college’s financial difficulties in his father’s day or Walter Mondale talk about money in American politics in his 1973 Commencement address. This ongoing project, with digitized audio and transcripts continually being added, was financed in part by the Minnesota Historical Society’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. For more information, contact archivist Ellen Holt-Werle at holtwerle@macalester.edu
