ALTOONA, Pa. — The next installment of Penn State Altoona's historical video project provides background on Edwin Zoller. Zoller was a husband, father, teacher, veteran, philosopher, and painter who lived near Tyrone, Pennsylvania. He taught painting and philosophy at Penn State Altoona and is best known for his paintings that followed the style of abstract expressionism. His book, "From a painter's notes: the writings and work of Edwin W. Zoller," is available in the University Libraries catalog.
Each Penn State Altoona historical video project features a voiceover narrative accompanied by scanned photos and newspaper clippings. The video series is a way for the archive to be viewed and enjoyed during the pandemic and reach more people interested in the college's history or seeking a snapshot of what campus life was like from its founding to the present.
The series is produced by Daniel Thacker, reference and instruction librarian, and Gale Biddle, information resources and services support specialist. More information is available on the Robert E. Eiche Library website.
