Among the clutter in the office, we found some reel-to-reel tapes. On one of them, we discovered a sound recording of the laying of the cornerstone for our beautiful building. You can hear the traffic going by on Chapman Highway and the scrape of the trowel as the morter is spread. Click here to hear sounds from 1961. Thank you to Chris Torrence for making the transfer to digital.
