In 1963-1964, a Bengal tiger prowled the halls of RIT. In his short life, that cat had a profound influence on the institute and on the students who cared for him.
Four decades later, five members of the original tiger committee got together to tell the story. David Page '66 (photo science), Jim Black '64 (chemistry), Denis Kitchen '65 (printing), Roger Kramer '65 (photo science), and Francis "Skip" Millor '65 (photo science) gathered in the Archives and Special Collections area of Wallace Library for a video-taped interview.
The tale begins in the RITskeller on RIT's old downtown Rochester campus. Someone - no one remembers who - suggested that RIT should have a real tiger.
