Johnston Documentary (c. 2004)
From Nicholas Sousa on December 18th, 2018
This video, prepared by John Grant '82JC, starts with a 16mm black and white film documentary made by NBC about the soon-to-exist Johnston College. Founding board members tour the construction of the foundations of Johnston quadrangle (with the Orton Center, and West and East Halls) while sonorous male "Voice of God" voice over tells the story. Finally, the founders are filmed having a discussion of the problems of contemporary education and various ways that Johnston College will be an innovative deviation from standard educational practices. The second part consists of color video shot of the 35th Renewal.
