    A lantern slide of McCurdy Natatorium. Featured in the slide, are several students, one standing on the diving board, two posed on either side of the board, one swimming in the pool and one using the side ladder. Inset in the upper right corner of the slide is an image of Professor T.K. Cureton, the swimming coach. The text at the bottom of the slide reads, "He always enjoys swimming, and his swimming tests introduce to him the McCurdy Natatorium and Professor T.K. Cureton, the swimming coach, who develops collegiate champions and is the author of a new book on swimming." During the 1930s, Springfield College used this image in a recruitment pamphlet with two titles: “A Cinema of Springfield College” and “Being the story of a Young Man who elects to go to Springfield College.” Through a series of pictures featuring the campus, students, and faculty, this pamphlet describes the life of a Springfield College student, from his very first day to graduation. Part of the Story of the Cinema of Springfield College Lantern Slide Series. less
