As part of the 50th anniversary of the Marching 110 this fall, we are in the process of putting together a photo album/book celebrating the first fifty years of the Marching 110. This book is NOT a new edition of "DIAMOND OHIO: A History of the Ohio University Bands" by George Brozak - more on an updated DIAMOND OHIO book in the coming months. The intent of this book (think of it like a nice coffee-table photo album) is to collect information and photos from each season of the Ohio University Marching Band from 1967-2016.

There will be no historical text or anything like that in this photo book. It simply will be 100 pages of photos, one two-page spread for each year. The only intended text in the book (other than a short intro/forward) will be the schedule for the band each season as well.

In addition for use in this collection of imagine and information regarding the first fifty years, we will also use select images and information in a special Marching 110 50th Anniversary Exhibit located at the Southeast Ohio History Center, located in Athens. This special Exhibit will be feature artifacts, video, and other information regrading the OUMB for the past fifty years.

So what do we need from you? Anything you can provide that will help us complete this wonderful collection of Marching 110 history! Photos, schedules, handbooks, whatever you have from your years in the band that will help us put this together. In 2012 we saw SO many cool photos and memories posted on the "Memories of Mr. S" page on Facebook, and realized that there is an amazing amount of material out there. 

Our goal for each year is to have a page/spread of photos from that year (including bowl games, Basketball tournaments, whatever applies to that year of the Marching 110!), as well as schedule from each season. The more information, the better!

All materials collected will be credited to the person who submitted it in the book, and to the photographer if known. Our goal is to collect so much material that we cannot possibly use it in this one collection. Some of the extras may find their way into the 50th anniversary edition of "DIAMOND OHIO," planned to be published in 2018. This edition will include updates to the Marching 110's history since the last update (in 2011) and whatever other new information we are able to uncover from the Ohio University Bands archives that hasn't already been included.


Below are links to submit materials for each year. Please make sure you are submitting your materials in the correct year if at all possible. Photos, schedules, handbooks, whatever you have that you think may be neat to include.

Photos should be scanned if possible at at least 300dpi.  I also find that with good lighting and focus, you can even take photos with your phone camera and it will work out pretty well! 

If you have schedules to share, you can just take a photo of the schedule, as those will be transferred to text anyways.

Any materials submitted should include any information about the photo that is available, including the date of the material, location, and any photo credits if known.

If submitting via Google Forms, you will need to log into your own Google Account to submit files.

If you don't have a Google Account, just submit it via e-mail.
