First, many thanks to everyone who helped solve the mystery of when Saturday classes ended. It was indeed 1968.
Second, I’m home sick today so all I have is another question. Last week a colleague in the English Department gave me this card, which she found stuck inside a book:
A quick perusal of the catalog turns up the fact that the book attached to the call number at the very top left is The Text of Keats’ Poems by Jack Stillinger, published in 1974, so that works with the 1979 checkout date.
My question is this: does anyone know what machine this card would have interacted with? We’ve had discussions in the past about some library computation projects that were research related but it isn’t clear to me what they would have used to actually just check out books.
Bonus: Lovett Hall tulips.
