Alum's gift puts more years of News Record online
A generous gift by Jordan L. Bleznick, A&S '76, has enabled UC Libraries to digitize four full years of the News Record student newspaper. Bleznick's gift adds 1973-76 to the previously digitized collection of the years 1960-70. Bleznick's gift honored his late father, Dr. Donald W. Bleznick, a professor of Romance Languages at UC for nearly 30 years. The younger Bleznick served on the News Record staff as an undergraduate during the years reflected in this new digitization. His donation continues the ongoing effort to digitize the newspaper's full archives.
