The University invited all of us back for one last visit to the interior of Thomas Hall. It took place on Tuesday, June 30, 1998 at 12 noon. The founder of WRTI, Professor John B. Roberts was there to lead us through the building where WRTI was born a half century ago. It also happened to be the 10th Anniversary of John Roberts' last day at Temple. After our tour, we ate at New Station pizza on the SW corner of Broad and Norris Streets. Professor Roberts paid the tab for the lunch. This was the last time most of us will ever get to go inside Thomas Hall. Check out the 65 photos (Updated 7/14/98).
