Bill Bowers Scrapbook and Interview

This collection pertains to materials donated by Bill Bowers, who helped to save one of two bells from the battleship U.S.S. Arizona from being destroyed. Collection consists of 4 VHS tapes, a DVD, a photographic scrapbook created by Bowers documenting his years as a University of Arizona student in the late 1920's as well as some background information about the materials. The scrapbook is considerably fragile due to deteriorated binding.
