Update from the editors

Who were those people from 1956?

Many of you responded to our request to help us identify individuals in the 1956 documentary about Boston College, Towers on the Heights, that we featured in the last @BC Bulletin, and half of the 24 unknowns have now been identified. You can see who they are (and perhaps help us identify some of the others) here.
