ALTOONA, Pa. — The next installment of Penn State Altoona's historical video project provides background on Athleen Stere. Stere was a Harvard graduate and received her doctorate from Penn State. She taught at Penn State Altoona from 1971 to 2012. Stere passed away on April 1, 2018, at the age of 97. Her dissertation, "Cytophotometry of Feulegen-DNA, Azure B-RNA and Gomori Alkaline Phosphatse Activity in Myocardial Tissue from Hypoxia Exposed Rats" can be found at the Robert E. Eiche Library at Penn State Altoona.
Each Penn State Altoona historical video project features a voice-over 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.
