In Search of PMC Textbooks, Circa 1960sFebruary 18, 2011
Dr. Walter L. Tamosaitis, a ’69 engineering graduate of PMC Colleges, contacted Widener University’s Wolfgram Library with an intriguing request we could not answer, but that alumni from the 60s may be able to assist:
I would like to obtain a copy of the book(s) I used in Military Science 101 and 102 in my freshman year. I think there was only one book, but maybe there were two. I think the book had a blue cover and was over one-inch thick, but after nearly 45 years my memory is fading (so is the book cover). I’m sure the book was used for years at PMC.
This may sound funny but the only courses I failed at Widener were these two military science courses. I would like to re-read the books. It is kind of a personal goal. Would you have a copy for sale or know where I can purchase one?
Another book I am interested in is the book used in Psychology 101 in my sophomore year. I remember the course being taught in Kirkbride Hall.
Thank you very much,
Dr. Walter L. Tamosaitis, Class of ’69
If you know the titles of these books or where to find them, please post a note in the comments field below or respond on Facebook.
It should be noted the performance in Military Science classes did not hinder Dr. Tamosaitis’ academic career. He later obtained an MS and PhD in systems engineering from the University of Alabama in Huntsville, and now lives on the West Coast.
