UMass Lowell Historic Hang Gliding Club photograph

The UMass Lowell Hang Gliding Collection

The University of Lowell Hang Gliding Club was established in 1974 by faculty member Bill Blood and the late Dr. John Kelly. The club was active until the early 1990s. They had events in Claremont, N.H. and Groton, Mass. The club won several intercollegiate hang gliding completion awards.

The Hang Gliding Club Collection consists primarily of photo and video records of the club's activities. The collection also includes the 1980 plans for an experimental graphite hang glider designed by ULowell student and club member Craig Douglas.

The Gilded Cage

The UMass Lowell International Films Series Continues with The Gilded Cage

Join us on April 18 at 5 p.m. for a screening of Ruben Alves' The Gilded Cage in O'Leary Library, Room 222.

The Gilded cage is a semi-autobiographical film written and directed by Ruben Alves, drawing on his Portuguese heritage. Ruben Alves' French comedy hit looks at a family of Portuguese immigrants in Paris. Maria and Jose have lived for thirty years on the ground floor of an apartment building and have become an integral part of the other residents' lives. When they plan to return to Portugal, their neighbors do everything they can to make them stay.

Professors Frank Sousa and Patricia Martinho Ferreira of the World languages Department will lead a discussion.
