    This recruitment pamphlet, "A Cinema of Springfield College," was published during the 1932-1933 academic year by Springfield College. At this time, Springfield College’s corporate title was the International Young Men’s Christian Association College. The pamphlet, which has an alternate title of “Being the Story of a Young Man who elects to go to Springfield College,” includes images of campus buildings, faculty, and students engaged in athletic and cultural activities. The first page includes the lyrics to “For Old Springfield" by Frederick S. Hyde and a notice that prospective students can secure more information by mailing a request to George O. Draper. Each subsequent page has two photographs and two captions, for a total of twenty-seven images. Using these pictures, this promotional pamphlet tells the story of a young man (called "Mr. Freshman") just starting his academic career, and follows this student through to graduation. This pamphlet is similar in content to another (“Springfield College Recruitment Booklet”) published by Springfield College, but it is unclear which came first. Many of the images were turned into lantern slides and are part of the Story of the Cinema of Springfield College Lantern Slide Series.
