Second Annual Giving Day a Great Success

The Beloit College community is generous and showed its heart and soul during its second annual Giving Day on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. In just 24 hours, the college raised over $65,000 from more than 450 supporters.

Not only did the gifts far surpass the original goal of $25,000, the event also raised $25,000 more than last year. Beloit is touched by the fantastic response received from supporters and is grateful to be backed by such a strong foundation of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends. These gifts help make ‪#‎BeloitPossible for the next generation of Turtles, Bucs, and Beloiters.

The unconditional support, enthusiastically offered by our alumni, parents, and friends is a tribute to the character of our community, and the value that we all collectively recognize in the mission we seek to advance. We at Beloit are privileged to have a community so willing to invest in the future of our great institution, and our students. For this, we are grateful,” said Mark Wold’95, Senior Director of Alumni & Parent Relations and Annual Support.

Thank you to all who supported Beloit College’s second annual Giving Day. As College President Scott Bierman often says, it’s “turtles all the way down.”

Documentary features Beloiters' research

A film that premiered Saturday (Feb. 23) features work by several Beloiters, past and present, all with ties to the Logan Museum of Anthropology.

Lost Nation: The Ioway -- Parts 2 and 3, a new documentary by Fourth Wall Films, follows up on Part 1--an Official Selection at the 2008 Beloit International Film Festival. In the new movie, filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle explore the history and culture of the Ioway Tribe in the 19th and 20th centuries. The Ioways, a small tribe that lived originally in Wisconsin and Iowa and now has reservations in Kansas and Oklahoma, reflect many processes common to Native American groups throughout the continent: territorial dispossession, tribal fragmentation, and poverty, as well as survival, resilience,and  language loss and revival.

The new film spotlights research on Ioway history and language by Logan Museum James E. Lockwood Jr. Director Bill Green, student Christina E. Brown'13, and former student Saul Schwartz'08. Brown, a Sanger Summer Research Fellow in 2012, has analyzed plant remains from an Ioway archaeological site and published a paper with Green about Ioway ethnobotany. Schwartz, now working on his Ph.D. dissertation at Princeton University, is studying language revitalization among the Ioway today and has an article in press with Green, on the history and materiality of Ioway interactions with neighbors and colonial powers. Bill also continues his work on Ioway cartography, focusing on a map made by tribal leaders in 1837.

In addition, the film features the Gottschall rockshelter, an archaeological site in southwestern Wisconsin excavated by former Logan Museum director and anthropology professor Bob Salzer.

The premiere of Lost Nation: The Ioway -- Parts 2 and 3 was held at the University of Iowa Museum of Natural History. Future showings are planned elsewhere in the region and on public television. See http://docublogger.typepad.com/ioway/ for information.
