New old Loyola films

Special Collections & Archives just completed the digitization of three Loyola promotional films from the 50s and 70s and put them up the Louisiana Digital Library.

Loyola of the South was produced in 1956 and investigates the different colleges and departments in the university as well as athletics and other extracurriculars:
