I visit Carl Bonde Jr’s university archives last July

February 23, 2013

Notes from 7/30/12 visit to the Mansfield Library Archives and Montana Collection at the University of Montana in Missoula:


I reviewed the 1942-3 issues of the university student newspaper the Montana Kaimin and the school annual:


January 8, 1943 front p article about ASTP program: “Induction of Reserves Planned/Army, Navy to Train 250,000/Men in 350 Colleges in Nation; Studies Under Military Control.


In the 1943 Sentinel I found Carl Bonde’s photo among the members listed for Sigma Nu.  Page 161.


The war was the all consuming and overriding topic within the Kaimin and the 1943 Wartime Sentinel.


Kaimin January 21, 1942:  “Authoress to Speak at Banquet.”  I found the terminology quaint.


“Duvall to Talk on Accouning.” A label-type headline.


“English Instructor/Discusses Typical/Poets at Meeting” was about a lecture by Instructor Leslie A. Fiedler in the 2/11/42 edition.  I am still close friends with Leslie’s son Michael.


Apri; 16, 1942, School of Journalism Dean A.L. Stone was retired by the State Board of Education.  Dean Stone is practically legendary.
