From the 1951 two-album "Songs of Washington State College" set, as originally performed by members of the Washington State Music program. The video was created from stills and clips held at WSU's Manuscripts, Archives, and Special Collections (MASC) as well as at WSU's Photo Services. WSU DTC (Digital Technology and Culture) intern Cate Hall digitized the music and created the video for MASC.
