A Visit to Fred Roger’s Original Neighborhood

A Visit to Fred Roger’s Original Neighborhood

Professors Buckleitner and Fishburn and a group of adventurous students from IMM 470 – The Methods of Fred Rogers – made a field trip to Fred Rogers’ childhood home in Latrobe, PA for a first-person look at the original Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood. The visit was made with the cooperation with the Fred Rogers Center at St. Vincent College, where Professor Buckleitner serves as a Senior Fellow. After a tour of the Fred Rogers Archive by archivist Emily Uhrin, students had a chance to present their projects to the staff, and a lucky few were able to play some of the instruments used on the program.
