A label on the box containing the tape provides the following title, "Alfred Hitchcock: The Master of Suspense". The date is October 13, 1967. The length is 53 minutes, 30 seconds. Mr. Sauro has provided the following background information:"Alfred Hitchcock visited Toronto as part of a multi-city tour to promote his film "Torn Curtain" because it was his 50th feature film. He was brought to Convocation Hall at the University of Toronto and the event was hosted by the Screen Directors Guild ofToronto.(then,a recently formed organization) I was there and so was CJRT-FM which, at the time, was owned by Ryerson....CJRT recorded the proceedings and subsequently edited the tape and put it on the air. The edited tape was much later given to me by Gerald Farkas (a Ryerson grad.) who was the news director. He gave it to me in the early seventies to use in my classes if I wanted to. The announcer was Ron McKee (also a Ryerson grad.)

Ryerson Song - vinyl audio discs (records)

According to Al Sauro, Ryerson pioneer and former faculty member and dean, the original Ryerson Song was written in five minutes, at the request of Principal Howard Kerr, who wanted to promote school spirit, especially during Ryerson sporting events. The Song was written in 1950. The following year, the Song was modified by both Sauro and Rennie Charles, the Song's co-writers. A new verse was written as the first verse ("Give us light...") whereas the original two verses ("RIT we will fight..." and "Long may you thrive...") and music served as refrain. It appears that the Ryerson Song may have been known mainly for its second and third verses, as the first verse is rarely referred to in documentation relating to the Song. The lyrics for the Song can be found in the "Music at Ryerson" documentation file. The instrumental rendition of the Ryerson Song, played by the Ryerson Band, was initially recorded on a 78 rpm audio disc (RG 210.5.06). It was subsequently dubbed onto contact disc in 2005 (RG 210.5.05) by John Hajdu of the Digital Media Projects Office. Documentation and descriptive information regarding the transfer process to CD are included with A. 2006-014. As well as the approimately 2 minute song, the Ryerson Band plays several jazz numbers on the reecording for a total time of 16:40.
