The inserts above are exactly proportioned to insert into the cassette cases  for those of you who have copies of that musical tribute/memorial made at Ferrum before graduation.   I used standard file-folders - the cream colored kind,  and cut the tab off and simply ran the above single page through onto that and cut the inserts out with a razor blade - using the metal edge of a wooden ruler to guide the blade safely.

This cassette is dedicated to the memory of
Eric Lee Baker,
a friend, a poet, and a spirit that touched us all. This tape was used during the Memorial Service held on Monday, April 8, 1996. It was there that we said good-bye to Eric and there that we came together to deal with the pain of his loss.

This tape has been compiled with the help of
Preston Ball,
Thomas Molette,
Angela Peters
Travis Mittel.
With the help of these friends and the log left by Eric from his last radio show, on March 28, 1996, we were able to compile some of Erics' favorite music. It was in this show that he dedicated the last song on this tape to the residents of Roberts Hall, so they would not forget him as he and they alike moved on through graduation and our future. None of us could have known then, the tragic loss we would soon face.

This tape is a collection of Erics' favorite musical pieces, and those we often heard on his show.

May 3, 1996

Mail brought in the package of Erics' last CHRYSALIS which was dedicated to him..... The last page says...
_____________________________________

Eric Baker 1973 - 1996

A week after the layout for this issue of Chrysalis was completed, our editor-in-chief, Eric Baker, was killed in a tragic automobile accident. Erics' poetry is itself testimony to his wit, his intelligence, and his humane attitude toward others. Members of the Chrysalis staff were privileged to know the man as well as the poet, and we know that we have lost a true friend. On behalf of this years' student body, the Chrysalis staff dedicates this 1995-1996 issue to Eric Baker, whose spirit encompassed the noblest expression of Art and Humanity.
