Segment 1

Title:  [Paula Porcher Criser – University of Florida’s First Lady]

Date:  ca. 1989

Duration:  00:06:11

File name:  NPA3701

At the beginning of the tape a woman’s voice states that some of the wives of the deans have gathered to honor and salute Paula Porcher Criser who had served the University of Florida for five years.  The tape is sort of a spoof and there is some humorous juxtaposition of commentary and pictures.  At the conclusion, five women (presumably those who planned the tape) are seated and all wear large tan paper bags over their heads as they wish to remain anonymous.  They thank both Linda Gray and Frank Ahern for their assistance.
