 Collection
Identifier: MSS-D-005

Scope and Contents

This collection contains born-digital files created as part of an immersive learning project on the history of Beech Grove Cemetery taught by Professor Ron Morris in Spring and Fall 2015. Students enrolled in the course created a website that provides visitors to Beech Grove Cemetery with information about local persons interred in the cemetery. The students also produced a book documenting stories about people buried in the cemetery.

Files include edited and unedited versions of interview videos; B-roll footage of Beech Grove Cemetery; photographs of and accompanying presentation slides about headstones in the cemetery; music and other audio files; and project working files.
