Bwog has a lot of feelings about institutional memory and history, especially after seeing Kill Your Darlings. So we’re doing #tbt: Columbia edition, with photos, text, and anecdotes from parents/professors/GS students who’ve been here too long. Have anything you’d like to see featured? Send it to tips or use our anonymous form. Senior Staff Writer Alexander Pines presents our first #tbt about Low and Butler Libraries.
Admittedly, I saw this on Tumblr. The Paris Review posted this image, from the Columbia College Alum Twitter, originally from the UArchives (all the social media, I know) about the 1934 “Great Columbia Book Slide,” in which twenty-two miles of books were transported from Low to a newly built Butler.
