|Drama: Photographs, pre-1930||MC2010/36 |
It is not known if this picture was taken at Manchester College or Mt. Morris College, however it was not found wtih the Mt. Morris materials. Portrait photographs hang on the wall and an archivist might be able to identify these individuals and identify the location. Each character is in a costume. It appears as if the following costumes are represented and perhaps the players are the cast of a variety show or vaudeville presentation:
Brethren man in collar and hat
White man in black face with top hat holding a child in fur cap on lap
One man reclining in a suit and hat holding a laughing mask
Nun or woman in burka with face exposed
Lady wrapped in a striped flag with a ribbon of stars.

|Ethnic Studies Programs||MC2011/79a,b,c |
CD #1 Much blank and irregular space before recording begins. The valuable amount of material on this recording is questionable. Sometimes students are clowning around. If listened to closely, this appears to be a recording of a class. The Archivist did not have time to listen to it all the way through.
CD#2 Continues with a student that is part of a panel of presentors that and is very hard to understand. There is also discussion.
CD#3 A latin individual talks about ethnic studies programs. This recording is very distinct but is only a partial recording of the entire presentation. The presenter is also a teacher from a small institution in Chicago.

|Graduation Event: Photograph, circa 1920's||MC2011/179 |
This photograph of a graduation event is not titled or dated so one can not be sure if it related to Manchester College or not. It was found with photographs of Manchester College, Mount Morris College and pictures related to the Church of the Brethren. The image was made by "Rickert Studio, Huntington, Indiana," a town close to Manchester College, so therefore could be Manchester College or a related institution. Evidence pointing away from Manchester College comes from the lack of individuals dressed in Brethren garb. There might be one man in a Brethren collar at the back table towards the viewer's left. Manchester College Faculty and Staff are not identifable.

Family history is traced from 1762, along with what appears to be apocalyptic beliefs in the creation of the numbers 666. The bible is beautifully illustrated:
An inscription at the beginning of the book has been translated:
My father, Peter Krebiehl, received this Bible from his father, Samuel Krebiehl. Upon my request he gave it to me, Jacob Krebiehl, his oldest son, as a gift. For this I owe him eternal gratitude. This Bible is therefore very dear and valuable to me. May God reward him with many blessings.
