General Use, Reproduction, and Copyright Policies

At its fall 2004 banquet, the Alumni and Friends of Price Laboratory School honored teachers who had served on the school's Unit III team from 1970 through 1995: Maribelle Betterton, Joan Duea, Bev Ewoldt Riess, Judith Gish, Betty Strub, Beverly Smith, Joan Lawrence, Lynn Nielsen, Janet McClain, and Sue Swartz.  This group had a remarkable record of developing innovative and wide-ranging curricula for the lower elementary grades.  Joan Duea gave most of the material in this collection to Becky Wilson Hawbaker in preparation for the Alumni and Friends banquet.  Becky Wilson Hawbaker then gave the material to Rod Library Special Collections in March 2005.

Most of the material in this collection consists of printed curriculum guides and audio-visual media produced by the Unit III team.  The audio-visual media consist primarily of photographic prints and photographic slide transparencies.  A good portion of this collection, housed in Boxes 1-3, was labeled when it arrived in Special Collections.  The arranger used these labels to create the inventory below.  However, the contents of Box 4 consist of material that was labeled "Miscellaneous"; was not labeled at all; or was loose in the shipping cartons.
