1926 promotional Vanderbilt recruitment video, “Buck Green at Vanderbilt”…

Filmed in 1926, this piece is one of the very first video documentations of student life at Vanderbilt. This silent video follows Buck Greene through his various shenanigans at Vanderbilt. Starting from the first day Buck Greene steps onto Vanderbilt’s campus to the day he graduates and marries his college sweetheart, this video not only documents Buck Greene’s personal journey at Vanderbilt University but also speaks to the many generations of students who have walked through the doors of Vanderbilt University.
