Although it didn’t get its traditional unveiling, the Class of ‘20 banner is ready to take its rightful place in Heidelberg’s history. A group of 14 now-graduates from the Class of ’20 combined their talents to plan the design of the banner before COVID-19 interrupted their final semester.

COVID-19 also caused the cancellation of graduation, so the class didn’t have the traditional opportunity to present their banner to President Huntington at commencement rehearsal and then debut it during the procession down Greenfield Street back in May.

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.
