In Search of…Eisenhower Video of PMC Visit

December 12, 2012

For the spring issue of Widener Magazine, I am working on a story about President Eisenhower’s 1963 visit to Pennsylvania Military College. May 31 will mark fifty years since he reviewed the cadets, presented military awards, and became the first honorary captain named in the long history of PMC.

If anyone has video of that day, please contact me by commenting on this post, e-mailing me at jsstarnes@widener.edu, or calling 610-499-4246.  (There is a video on Youtube.com of Eisenhower and the parade on Memorial Field, but we are hoping to find additional video footage since there were numerous cameras rolling).  I also am interested in photographs and stories from alumni and others who were there that day. — Sam Starnes, Editor
