Tales of the Dragon Presents: Films from the Archives

Discover the rich history of Drexel University at the first in a 3-part film screening presented by the Drexel University Archives!

University Archives staff will share rarely screened archival video that reflects life on campus in the mid-1990s. The opening event will feature two videos:

  • A comic, musical skit written for the Drexel 100 Year Anniversary in 1991 that puts A. J. Drexel and family on stage to tell you about their lives and joke about their legacies. Starring Drexel descendant Livingston Ludlow Biddle, Jr., and a whole host of very earnest local actors
  • What *is* ethical research anyway? Watch these very '90s scientists wrestle with questions about tweaking experiment results and when, exactly, taking inspiration from a colleague becomes intellectual property theft. Featuring 1 amazing mullet and more than adorable lab rat

Bring your lunch and your curiosity about Drexel’s history – we’ll provide the popcorn!

This event is open to all Drexel students, faculty and staff, and members of the public.
