Engineering Banquet in Honor of A. A. Potter Retirement, May 7, 1953

Identifier: MSP 265, File 1
Scope and Contents File consists of three audio reel recordings from an engineering banquet honoring A. A. Potter's retirement on three unknown Scotch reels and one Scotch 190 reel. Audio reels 1 and 4 have overwritten audio recordings, which has effectively removed some parts of retirement ceremony recording. The original recording of the retirement ceremony included four audio reel recordings. Audio reel 2 was completely overwritten by a different program, so it is not included as part of this file.
