Welcome to CASE Stories

In 2008 the Kelvin Smith Library launched a new project utilizing library staff and resources in order to identify, craft, and broadcast biographical interviews with notable University administrators and those associated with CWRU who have distinguished themselves through service to the University, the University Circle community and the Greater Cleveland area. For this initiative KSL staff combined elements of oral history, knowledge capture and web 2.0 technologies to create a new approach to understanding, preserving and presenting the history of Case Western Reserve University. The end product consists of a series of podcasts made available via this blog; they are called CASE Stories.

Patricia B. Kilpatrick

pbksundial.jpg Patricia B. Kilpatrick, who retired from the University in 1992 as Vice President and University Marshal Emerita, is the subject of the first CASE Stories podcast available here. Currently volunteering in a leadership role for the Mather Alumnae Association’s Million Dollar Challenge Grant Campaign, Kilpatrick spent thirty years at CWRU as a highly successful administrator whose career spanned an era of intense social and institutional change. She was as adept at building bridges as she was at breaking down barriers when it came to the best interests of the University. That is the story we hope to tell.
