Thursday, June 11, 2020 - 7:00pm
Join us as we step into the past and experience what it was like to learn from some of the greatest minds in Computer Science!
This event, presented by the Libraries and the School of Computer Science, will give you an exclusive look into the University Archives as our team of experts work against the clock to save a rare collection of videotapes featuring CS pioneers like Raj Reddy and Herb Simon.
Hear from CMU archivists Katherine Barbera and Emily Davis on the history, discovery, and plans for preserving these precious tapes, as well as from alumnus and founding member of Pixar, Ralph Guggenheim, who experienced both sides of the camera during his years on campus in the 1970's and 1980's.
