About This Website

This site was a collaborative project between the the Lewis & Clark College Archives, the Watzek Library Digital Initiatives Office, the Lewis & Clark College Music Department, and the Lewis & Clark College Office for Institutional Advancement. It is the hope of the project team that the website will provide a greater level of accessibility to the L. Stanley Glarum Collection in the College Archives, and communicate the significance of Glarum's career to the Lewis & Clark Community.

The text and content of the site was researched, written, and curated by students in the Lewis & Clark Music program. Ethan Allred '12 started the work on this project in 2011 when he received a grant from Lewis & Clark to undertake a research project at the archives of the American Choral Directors Association in Oklahoma, where he examined their collection of L. Stanley Glarum papers. After cataloging music, programs, letters, records, and other documents, Allred received permission to use imagery from the collection for an online archive at Lewis & Clark. During the Spring of 2013 two student interns, Erika Peregrine '13 and Amy Waters '15, added Ethan's assembled materials to an online digital collection, which they supplemented with materials from the Lewis & Clark College Archives, including audio recordings and photographs. Erika and Amy also conducted interviews with choir members that studied with Glarum, and wrote a narrative history that serves as the framework for the entire website. Alice Whitaker, a student employee in the College Archives provided valuable assistance in cataloging digital objects, while Assistant Archivist, Zach Selley, lead the effort to provide high quality digital recordings of the College Choir. Much of the site's success can be directly attributed to Anneliese Dehner, Digital Projects Developer in the Watzek Library, who was responsible for the site's graphic design and functionality. Thanks are also due to those who consulted on the project including: Mark Dahl, Watzek Library Director; Elaine Hirsch, Associate Library Director; Jeremy Skinner, Special Collections Librarian; Jeremy McWilliams, Digital Services Coordinator; and Katherine FitzGibbon, Assistant Professor of Music and conductor of the Lewis & Clark College Choirs. Finally, a special thanks is due to Pete "Pano" Vlahos '57 who encouraged staff to find a way to honor the legacy of Dr. Glarum and to Sharon Bosserman-Benson, who worked diligently to see it completed.
