Collection home page

A symposium was help in December 1999 to examine fundamental issues at the beginning of a new century facing research universities, such as Cornell, and to honor Cornell's 8th president, Dale R, Corson. This DVD captures that salute, which included an 18-minute video tribute, the speeches at a gala banquet and a luncheon (71 minutes) and the audio for more than 13 major addresses presented at the Symposium - for a total DVD running time of about 10 hours, including thoughtful and provocative presentations by the 9th and 10th Presidents of Cornell University - Frank Rhodes and Hunter Rawlings. In addition to the news stories about the Symposium, included are photos of the Corson family and many of their friends who attended the Symposium. These presentations are musically enhanced with Cornell presentations by the Glee Club and chimes masters.
