    A Sense of Place

    The Brown campus has been described as a priceless jewel, an oasis in the middle of a great city... looking always as a college should look. Out guide for this look at the Brown campus is David Macaulay, noted author and illustrator, whose books on castles, cathedrals, and pyramids have been adapted for television on PBS. Macaulay's most popular book, "The Way Things Work," has sold millions of copies worldwide. We invite you to view one of America's historic campus landscapes through the lens of a camera and the eyes of one of America's best-known illustrators.

    Made Not Born: The Wife and Dimes of Josiah S. Carberry

    Made Not Born: The Wife and Dimes of Josiah S. Carberry

    "Made Not Born: The Wife and Dimes of Josiah S. Carberry" is a 16 Minutes special about Brown's legendary professor of psychoceramics. 16 Minutes is a serious news program of dubious origin which, alas, is 21 minutes and 41 seconds long.

    Produced by the Brown Club of RI and Friends of the Library

    Voices, Faces, Brown

    Voices, Faces, Brown

    From The Weekly Bulletin, 11/3/1978:

    Following its on-campus premiere during Parents Weekend and subsequent screenings for students, faculty, and staff, the film Voices, Faces, Brown is due to enter a new phase in its life as a cinematic interpretation of academic, social, and extracurricular life at the University. By month's end 10 copies of the 28-minute, 16mm technicolor film wlll be available for showings across the country, thus facilitating the efforts of the admission, alumni relations, and development offices to acquaint diverse audiences with Brown today.

    A production of the University relations office and Seven Seas Cinema, Voices Faces, Brown is the result of 12 hours of filming between last February and Commencement Weekend and was completed in September at a cost of $39,000. Featured in the presentation are students reflecting on their experiences in independent concentrations; administrators, including Dean of the College Walter Massey and President Howard Swearer, talking about the character of the curriculum and the excellence of Brown's students and faculty; and faculty members (among them Peter A. Stewart, professor of medical science) in classroom settings. Times and locations of future on-campus showings will be announced at a later date.
