Robert McIntyre Thrush received an appointment as a halftime clerk at the Extension Library on the Bay Campus (now USF St. Petersburg) in April 1968. Working under the supervision of Extension Librarian Osborne Gomez, Thrush coordinated audio/visual services for the young campus. By the late 1980s, “Bob” Thrush oversaw a very active area of campus. Under the supervision of Gerald Notaro, Media Services Librarian, he became a senior audio/visual equipment operator. He and wife Dorothy “Dot” Thrush—a longtime employee in the campus bookstore—retired from the University in 1991. These materials offer a portrait of instructional media activities at USF St. Petersburg from the late 1960s through the early 1980s.
