    I agree – may be my favorite set yet. That kid on the tractor and the woman in the yellow dress – awesome.

    Anyone know what college/school that is in the 3rd picture? It looks similar to the University of Vermont, but there are some subtle differences…

    ScanCafe just posted my order for approval. They are 3000 dpi but a really small size, suitable for web but not printing. Are the files larger when I receive my disk?

    VM — According to my friend and hired-gun graphic designer Kevin (http://www.hellbert.com), the files scale to “300dpi, an image that is roughly 12.5 wide by 8.5 high.” I defer to Kevin because I don’t know much about these things. So that should be big enough to print a coffee mug, but not big enough for a billboard (should you want to buy a billboard). That said, I think they offer “professional” scans at larger sizes. You should really talk to Scan Cafe before the scanning starts. —MW

    The school in the 3rd picture is Clemson University, located in Clemson, SC. At the time of the picture it was a military college, hence the cadets drilling on Bowman Field. The building in the background is Tillman Hall. Incidentally, Clemson is playing in the College World Series right now. Go Tigers!

    Love the Kodachrome set, pity the film has been discontinued as it was fun to take pictures with.

    All the Kodachromes are so gorgeous and deliciously inspiring. I love the dusty yet bright color palettes. Thanks so much for posting these… I hope you do get a book deal out of it.

    by University of Vermont do you mean Norwich University? it isn’t Norwich, I was wondering this myself because I went to college at Norwich.

    The good news is I sent in 1000 kodachrome slides today…so there is definitely more coming. Glad you all are enjoying the pictures.

    My mistake Michael, I was looking at one of the preview files. I’m downloading 150 high-res images right now. Thanks for the tip on these people, they have been so easy to work with.

    I was going to post about the third picture as well, but looks like someone else identified it first! It’s amazing how much has changed and how much it’s still the same from when I graduated in ’99.

    Sorry, I missed where these come from? Are they family slides?

    I recognized the Clemson shot immediately–grew up in a country town 20 miles away.

    I don’t think it was ever exclusively a military school–it was a huge Ag school. We used to go to the dairy there for unbeatable ice cream; and in the bygone days they aged blue cheese in an unfinished railroad tunnel up in the Blue Ridge mountains. They also had great flower fields we visited every spring.

    Thanks to the land grant of the great Thomas Green Clemson. It’s good to see the tigers represented in brilliant kodachrome.
