NEW 1955 Houstonian Yearbook Video

The University of Houston 1955 Yearbook staff undertook the task of creating a 45 rpm vinyl record to accompany the printed yearbook. Their innovative idea was to produce “Á yearbook with sound”. They  gathered together recording experts from KUHT-TV and KUHF-FM, Band Leader Ed Gerlach and his orchestra, and “the voice of the idea” Jack Bailey.

Katie Buehner, Music Librarian and I built upon the work of the yearbook staff by creating a video from the digitized recording and images from the printed yearbook.

We hope you enjoy this look at the University of Houston in 1955
