CCL to present history of MSU

CCL-E.jpgMorehead State University’s Camden-Carroll Library will present a screening of “Far Above the Rolling Campus: A Documented History of MSU,” Thursday, Sept. 21, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Athena Room (second floor).

In celebration of Morehead State University’s 130th birthday, the Camden-Carroll Library invites the campus and community to attend a film screening to learn more about the history of MSU.

The documentary covers MSU from 1887 to present day. It highlights the historical events and cultural and societal issues that helped shape the campus, students, faculty, and staff who have called Morehead State University home.

The event is sponsored by MSU’s School of English, Communication, Media and Languages; School of Humanities and Social Sciences; and Camden-Carroll Library’s Special Collections and Archives.

Light refreshments will be served.

A question and answer session with producer Steve Middleton, instructor of mass communication and filmmaker, and historian Dr. John Kleber will follow the screening

Kleber, MSU’s emeritus professor of history, is a noted historian with expertise in the state of Kentucky. An active member of the McConnell Center, he is best known for being the editor of The Kentucky Encyclopedia and the Encyclopedia of Louisville. He is a nationally recognized expert in U.S. religious history and the American frontier, with an additional interest in oral history techniques. He taught at MSU from 1968-96. Kleber was the recipient of the Distinguished Teacher Award in 1982 and the Distinguished Researcher Award in 1992-93.
