Q&A with Nathan
We asked Nathan a few questions about his collection to learn a little more about what he most cherishes.
What is your favorite item in the collection?
I have several “favorites.” Each favorite is a combination of the item’s rarity, the surprise in discovering its existence, and the thrill of acquiring it.
- 1969 UWP High School Yearbook
- Great Things album with school filmstrip (still in box with invoice)
- LP of the White House performance for Nixon
- Up with People World Festival pennant5. The only known copy of the “guitar poster” to still exist
What is the most unique item in your collection?
Sometime in the 1970s a cast visited Pennsylvania. One of the host dads for the cast was a hobbyist who flattens and engraves pennies. He created a design for UWP and gave one to each cast member. (this is the story that was relayed to me when I found it on eBay.)
What item you have the most duplicates of?
I have over 30 copies of the CD for A Common Beat.
What item do you wish for the most?
An UWP high school ring
