Green Camp Film from the CU Archives is now on-line

Image from Green Camp Film

A silent film produced by The Cooper Union and its students documenting time spent by students at the college’s former rural campus, Green Camp, during the 1950s has been recently digitalized and made available on-line. The former Green Camp is now part of Ringwood State Park in New Jersey. The exact dates of the film segments are unknown, but scenes include fall, winter and spring events filmed during the 1950s. The film begins with a scene that we believe features Gano Dunn when he was the engineering dean.
