The SMU Archives is looking for “a few good Rotundas.” To prepare for the SMU centennial, the archives department will need to deconstruct one copy from each class year. “It breaks our heart to do this,” says University Archivist Joan Gosnell, “but this small sacrifice is for the greater good.”
The Archives is in need of SMU Rotundas from the following years: 1956, 1966, 1971, 1978, 1979, 1992 and 1996.
These yearbooks will not be returned, as they will be taken apart during the archiving process. If you own a Rotunda from one of these class years and would like to donate it to SMU Archives, please contact Joan Gosnell, University Archivist, at 214-768-2261 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Yearbooks can be shipped to:
c/o Joan Gosnell
Southern Methodist University
PO Box 750396
Dallas, TX 75275-0396
More information about accessing the archived yearbooks will be available later this year.
