Dear Milne Alumni and Supporters,

In this issue:

* Digitization Project Update!
* 2012 Milne Alumni Reunion Review...Coming Soon!
* Sad News

(Please note that links included in Milne Alumni Newsletters may at some point become obsolete.)


To date we have received $10,362 toward digitizing all available Crimson & White and Bricks & Ivy editions. This includes $5,000 in matching funds from the Marcia Brown Library Fund. We are now able to begin our digitzation project, which will enable us to enjoy full-text web access of many of our Milne yearbooks and/or newspapers via searchable files.

Please remember that the total necessary to complete this project is $25, if you haven't yet donated or wish to increase your contribution, we're not finished yet!

For further information, see A list of donations is available at

Again, for those who are interested, microfilming is done on planetary cameras, including Zeutschel and Gratek Congress I, and book cradles are available to allow bound volumes to be microfilmed without disbanding. Hudson Microimaging's digital conversion services provide an output as Tagged Image File Format (TIFF) and derivative formats such as Portable Document Format (PDF) that are indexed to facilitate retrieval. If you have further questions about the digitization process, please contact Brian Keough.


On behalf of those working on the 2012 Milne Alumni Reunion Review, I apologize for not completing this project yet. However, I believe that once it is finished, it will have been worth the wait. Stay tuned...


Please note that I rely upon the Albany Times Union and input from other alumni for this information, so if you become aware of someone who has passed away, please let me know. If a name is underlined, it represents a link to the obituary. Many obituaries are available free for a limited time only.
