One day I dropped into the Blanchard Alumni Building and was talking with Diana Brooks Bewley, the Alumni Executive Secretary, about the thousands of old photographs that she had laying around. She had old photos on slides, digital photos and several boxes of printed photos. Additionaly, she had yearbooks back to the 1945-1946 school year that had already been scanned into digital images. We agreed that all of this was a treasure trove of memorabilia that no one was ever going to see and enjoy. That's when I volunteered to build a website to display all of these images so that all Blanchard alumnus and alumna could enjoy them. Currently, not counting the yearbooks, there are over 2,000 images on this site and because it is a work-in-progress there will be many more in the coming months.
