Three Images of the Opening

that I’ve never seen before.

I found them among some rather miscellaneous slides that Bud Morehead seems to have gotten from William Ward Watkin:

Slides Opening with speaker

Slides Opening shot with camera

Slides Opening mech  lab

I will now begin the process of staring at them until I see something.

Actually, I’ve already spotted one thing. The movie camera in the second photo is clearly the same one you can see in the car at the far left in this familiar picture of the academic procession:

Opening procession 1

So that’s a start.

    One immediately noticeable item is that the Italian cypress trees are already leaning, poor things.

    Interesting bonus shot from the Grand Hall of the RMC. I tend to forget has windows looking out into the courtyard.

    A capella or barbershop singing night at the RMC?

    Did any of the movies of the opening ceremony survive to be scanned and visible online today?

    That’s the exact spot in the RMC where the student athletes performed their annual talent show for several years. Most of the acts were musical acts involving between one and four performers. Those shows were held on Sunday night so the organizers would request that the regular hour staff set up the AV equipment several days in advance.
