It’s a fitting motto, as its members are prepared and eager to respond to emergencies and the needs of local and regional communities any time, day or night. As a coast guard member, Ed Bizorik, ’10, doesn’t find it unusual to get called away in the middle of the night or to fly across several states to help in an emergency.

Heidelberg’s Archives is like a window to the past, where the institution’s history and memorabilia live. For the past 14 years, Professor Emeritus of German Dr. Bob Berg and his wife, Dorothy, have been the keepers of the Archives. 

During their time as archivists, these Class of ’65 alumni made a great deal of progress in both organizing the holdings and bringing preservation processes up to date.

But, it’s time for a new chapter. Bob and Dorothy have officially retired as archivists – in Bob’s case, retired again.
