WPSU is traveling to towns across central and northern Pennsylvania to collect oral history recordings. The first stop was in Bradford, in McKean County. Dick McDowell, the President of Pitt-Bradford from 1973 to 2002, talks with his long time colleague Jim Evans. Evans is currently the Vice President and Dean of Student Affairs at the university. They talk about Tullah Hanley, an early benefactor of the university and quite a character.

I always enjoy hearing stories about Mrs. Hanley. As a young girl (10), I was always cautious to go downtown on the weekends..As young kids we walked everywhere, Tullah would have parties that drifted into the local square where you would find live bands and tons of kids dancing and having fun. Drs.McDowell and Evans are great storytellers!!
