Digital Media Department records

These Digital Media Department files consist primarily of materials related to the "Beyond Glory: Stories of Mack and Jack Robinson", an undergraduate project led by Media Design Program instructors Andrew Davidson & Allison Goodman with undergraduate instructor Laura Silva, in the summer of 1997. The CD-ROM is an interactive documentary about the lives of Pasadena natives Jackie Robinson and his brother Mack. Produced as public service for the Pasadena Robinson Memorial for the 50th anniversary commemoration of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in major league baseball, "Beyond Glory" was distributed to schools and libraries in the Pasadena Unified School District.

The administrative files were created by Andrew Davidson, Digital Media Department Chair. The computer files consist of CD-ROMs, published by the department, of student and faculty digital media design work, as well as the project files for Beyond Glory.

There are photographs and negatives of the Beyond Glory project, mostly of the oral history participants, which have been removed to the photograph files. The videotape and audiotape cassettes (which have been individually cataloged) are found in the Digital Media video and audio collections. The videos are mainly the master (Betacam) and duplicate (VHS) copies of the Beyond Glory oral histories. Also included is a video series of the Mok Institute Project, summer 2000.
