The Bulletin: Campus News for the SUNY Cortland Community

  Issue Number 11 • Monday, Feb. 22  


Campus Champion

Every Thursday morning for the past 20 years, Associate Librarian Emeritus Jake Schuhle has made his way into the Memorial Library, where he selflessly volunteers his expert services as the College’s archivist. In the age of instant computer access to information, Jake offers a simple reminder, “Someone still has to put the information in there.” Jake has been helping the SUNY Cortland campus community for more than a half-century. Beginning in 1954, he devoted 31 years — the first 26 in the Campus School — as a librarian. Although he officially retired in 1985, Jake plans to keep volunteering in the Memorial Library archives as long as he enjoys it.
