This 1980 film was created as part of Washington State University's Women in Science series. It consists of an interview with Astronaut Sally Ride conducted by WSU's Dr. Sue Ritter, talking about Ride's experiences in classrooms as well as her physical training with NASA as a member of the Astronaut Training Program.  In 1983, Sally Ride would become the first American woman in space. This was digitized from a 3/4" U-matic film held by Washington State University's Manuscripts, Archives,...

Complete version of a 1981 promotional video celebrating Washington State University. It's narrated by WSU alum Keith Jackson, and the song is by Bruce Innes (incorrectly noted as Bruce Ennis in the credits). This was digitized from a 16mm film held by Washington State University's Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) in their unprocessed university films collection.

In the predawn hours of February 26th, 1948, Paradise Creek broke through a sandbag wall and flooded student housing trailers (then located in the low-lying flats just south of Washington State University) and downtown Pullman, Washington. More information on this flood can be found at http://wsm.wsu.edu/ourstory/index.php?title=Floods_Of_1948. This silent film was digitized by WSU Libraries' Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) from a film, Palouse on the Loose, held there.

Enoch Albert Bryan's history of the Washington State College is a cornerstone of the University's history. Bryan served as President of the University from 1893 to 1916 and returned to teach Economics and Economic History in 1923. Bryan first covers the beginnings and organization of the College in the 1890s. His narrative then moves on to development and expansion in the pre-World War One period. His book then covers the "new regime" of post-1918 development on the campus and the...

During his career with USIS, Leynse produced over 50 films, and served as head of USIS-Korea. After leaving USIS in 1966, he started Oceania Productions, an independent film production company, and in 1970 he joined the faculty at Washington State University, where he taught until his death in 1977....

Silent color film of cheese-making at Washington State College, probably in spring of 1959. This would have been filmed in the Ferdinand's creamery / dairy, then located in Troy Hall. The video is a couple minutes out of a 30-minute 16mm b-roll film held in WSU's Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (ua349b12n01). It may have been filmed for use in the "This is WSU" film which was produced within the next year or so.
