Update 9/4/08: The deadline from the publisher has been extended through November, so keep sending in your anecdotes!
We are asking for help with the Maryland Bands' centennial history book being published during the 2008-2009 academic year. The package will include 216 pages of centennial history, a 40-page Maryland Band Song Book, and a CD of school songs. We are currently developing the photo layout and narrative for the Wakefield/Sparks years, and the centennial celebration itself that will make up the last three chapters of the centennial history.
This work is to be completed and to the publisher by Early Week — the last week this August .

If you have photos, articles, magazines, buttons, posters, etc. that you want to donate to the permanent Maryland Band Collection in the University Archives, please make a short inventory of these items and send the document and the materials you wish to donate to Anne Turkos, the University Archivist. She will be pleased to have these items for the Archives. If you are on campus, you can also hand-deliver donations to Anne in the Archives at Hornbake Library.

We are gathering a comprehensive index of annual band photos, including marching band, concert band, symphonic band, SWE, and others. That number also includes 30 years of ROTC bands!
We are missing many annual pics from the last several decades. If you have annual group photos from this list from any band ensemble, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can find the best way to scan them into our upcoming History Book.
