Scope and content

Two copies of an 8mm colour film of Ryerson activities taken by Journalism instructor Ted Schrader. An approximate list of scenes, in rough sequential order, is as follows : Ryerson Hall and St. James Square grounds; students in cars; orientation and initiation; a visit to the Ottawa Press Gallery (Earl Beattie); the Ryersonian newsroom (Ted Schrader); the cafeteria; an "away" football game (student supporters, parade, cheerleaders, band, Al Sauro); ROW/RIOT(?) rehearsals; the front of Ryerson Hall; the temporary buildings and quonset huts; a young Paul Nowack; Earl Beattie; a TTC chartered bus(?); students at the Ryerson Hall entrance; a reference to the Eisenhower U.S. election. Duration time: 25 minutes. See collection record 112-17 for other Schrader film and UM114 for additional Schrader films and documentation (from Earl Beattie Family). This film is not to be confused with "The Ryerson Story", a promotional film on Ryerson, and "Career College", an NFB production, which were both done at about this time. See The Ryersonian, November 21, 1957, for an article on Schrader's film.
