This image of a pair of aviatrices was found in a 1941–42 student handbook. According to researcher Theresa McDevitt, flight training apparently took place on campus, and there was a club related to it. Readers with information about the photo and/or the training are invited to contact McDevitt, who is building a collection of interviews, or University Archivist Harrison Wick, Room 302, Stapleton Library; 724-357-3039 or hwick@iup.edu. McDevitt’s e-mail address is mcdevitt@iup.edu.

A ribbon cutting for the building, renovated through a public-private partnership that included a generous gift by the Fairman family, was held in September. Photo: Keith Boyer
