Special Reception: The Cradle of Coaches
On Homecoming Saturday the staff of the Havighurst Special Collections hosted a reception honoring our Fall exhibit featuring the Cradle of Coaches Archive. A small but fascinated audience heard from one of the creators of the Archive, current Alumni Affairs Board President Nick Selvaggio, who spoke for himself and co-creator Steve Stout about their hopes and dreams in donating the collection to Miami. Then attendees, who included donor Mrs. John (Sandy) Pont, her son, and grandson, enjoyed a guided tour of the exhibit led by exhibit curator Johnathan Cooper and saw an extended exhibit of additional materials along with film footage of some Cradle members in action.
