Great Hurricane of Sept. 21, 1938 Clean-Up
Black & White, Silent
The title card reads: “The Great Hurricane of Sept. 21, 1938. The Clean-Up begins the morning after.” Footage shows downed tree limbs and branches on the Bridgewater State Teachers College campus and on neighboring properties. Students are seen walking though the campus, followed by footage of students helping to clear the fallen trees and branches from the campus quadrangle and “lower campus” (east of Summer Street). Students with axes chop the largest tree branches into smaller sections for removal while other students form piles from the smaller limbs and leaves.
