Dear Egbe,


We reviewed your requests for documents at the Executive Committee of the North American Baptist Heritage Commission on August 23. It was agreed that I would scan and save two documents as tests to see if the quality is adequate for your purposes. We do not have the ability with our current equipment to make these documents searchable.


I am sending:

1) “Saker Baptist College {Dining Hall-Auditorium] Dedication” program as a pdf file. This program was a mimeographed program on a dusty pink 8” x 13” paper. The print was faded. Our scanning and printing equipment does not know what to do with this size paper, so I scanned each 8” x 6.5” page of the program on a separate 8.5” x 11” sheet. You can see the lines of the edges of the paper. It does make the center schematic drawing a little less easy to visualize, but words were cut off with other approaches. We have this document placed in acid-free protective sleeve so that the paper won’t deteriorate further. ...


We are going to move slowly on scanning until we are able to make the documents searchable, and determine how best to attach documentation so that we do not violate copyright laws.


John Siewert told me that his sister, Alma Henderson, was at a Saker graduation a year or two after this dedication when the actual Prime Minister (not the acting Prime Minister as in this Dedication event) was there and she took some good pictures in color we now have here. Is this something you would be interested in?


Best wishes,

Jackie Howell

THE SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE DINING HALL DEDICATION,

Hard to put into words how I felt when I received the email below and its attachments!!! It doesn't get more AUTHENTIC than this ...

Class of '86's Student #1726, (NGOASONG JOSEPHA)
THE 13 MARCH 1962 VISIT TO 
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA BY
H.E. PRESIDENT AHMADOU AHIDJO
Today, March 13 2014 marks exactly 52 years since H.E. Ahmadou Ahidjo - then President of the Federal Republic of Cameroon, visited the United States. The video above is already posted on the YESTERYEAR page of this website and I don't think I would have made any "fuss" about this whole "ANNIVERSARY", had I not stumbled upon the PRICELESS documents related to and surrounding the momentous event which are now part of the JFK LIBRARY ARCHIVES!!!! It is obvious from the sheer VOLUME of the documents and the meticulous DETAILS - from who got to sit in which car, how to pronounce their names, and what formalities and DIET RESTRICTIONS were to be observed, to the BIOGRAPHIES of ALL the members of the Cameroonian Delegation! In fact, even a detail like "THE PRESIDENT SMOKES CIGARETTES" is included!!! From these documents, (which I am not even halfway done perusing, I have sure learned A LOT about the Political and Economic "landscape" of CAMEROON at the time, and about the "MAJOR PLAYERS" on the political scene back then. Chances are, you will to!

- Wondering where in the world your "DULONG", "PETITE", long lost CLASS MATE or DORM HEAD could be?
- Traveling to some far-flung place and wondering if there could possibly be a familiar face 
(or voice) out there?

ORIGINAL COPY OF THE S.B.C. SONG
Submitted to SakerPride by Dr. Stella Nwigwe Anyangwe ('69)
At the request of Dr. STELLA NWIGWE ANYANGWE on behalf of the ExSSA-SOUTH AFRICA for which she is the very much cherished ADVISER, Pioneer Sakerette and first President of EXSSA CAMEROON, Sis PLAYNE FUONDJING sent her THE ORIGINAL VERSION OF THE SAKER SCHOOL SONG posted below, which she obtained from the author of the song herself Sis GRACE SAMA NGALIM of ExSSA-BAMENDA.

Says Dr. STELLA ANYANGWE in a note to her Chapter:
"I have been a member of several Chapters of our Association, and it has pained me, to no end, to hear our school song sung wrongly, and with utter glee! I hope our President-General will distribute this original version, with its correct solfa notation, to all chapters worldwide, so that we all can henceforth sing the correct version of our anthem!
EXSSA-SA secretary, kindly forward the song to all our members, and we will start re-learning/un-learning the anthem during our meeting on Sunday. We will have to sing the correct version at our official launch in November.

Warmly
Sis/Aunty Stella

... CAN I GET AN AMEN???!!!
And for those of us who have no clue how to read solfa notation, I have posted below, a pretty close/accurate version of 
FROM GREENLAND'S ICY MOUNTAIN, the HYMN that inspired the song.
