With the updates to campus and dormitory buildings, a new map was created by Evalyn Prouty Hickman (Colorado Alpha).
“To keep pace with the expansion and the changes in our project in Gatlinburg, Evalyn is giving us her third drawing of a pictorial map. The first map was made in 1943 and it and the one following have been available in place mat forms.”
Neither too young nor too old
A new slogan for the Summer Craft Workshop was introduced in 1960: “Neither too young nor too old.” The program continued to grow, with the largest group ever housed on campus.
“Attendants represent a wide field of endeavor. Last summer’s roster listed many many professionals, three who work with the blind, one serving in a correction home for girls, university extension workers, a rehabilitation worker, art teachers, craft teachers, elementary teachers, an architect, and a retired M.D. Some come just for fun, many to further a hobby and most of them for university credit.” – Lois Snyder Finger
