The old timers Colorado River trip video collection (1994) consists of video recordings of an expedition down the Colorado River designed to document changes to the river, its geology and its ecosystem in the years after the construction of the Glen Canyon Dam. Representatives of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and veteran river guides were joined by historians and archivists. This collection includes footage of the river trip, group meetings at Northern Arizona University, and anecdotes by veteran river runners about past journeys and historic rapids.
The William M. Purdy papers (1954-1991) consist of personal and professional documents for Purdy (1921-1993), a noted Utah educator. The materials include correspondence, writings, and documents concerning Rowland Hall-St. Mark's School, where Purdy was headmaster from 1968-1981. Also included in the collection is his paper, "An Outline of the History of the Flaming Gorge Area."
