    Dear Editor,
    I was trying to find the profile on the guys who created the “Six degrees from Kevin Bacon.” the archives are only listed by publication date, without a search engine. I think a search would be a valuable asset to the online publication, although I’m sure i don’t have a clue on how complicated or expensive that may be.
    I’m looking, as while I’m not a celebrity, have never met Mr. Bacon nor have I ever been in film, I closely know people who have worked with Mr. Bacon and am two or three degrees away from him by these associations (plus the one of also being an alumna of Albright, that makes three different paths).
    I’ts an interesting factoid to my life and I’d like to check on the story about the game and its originators.
    regards,

      Hi, Cheryl.
      Thank you for your message and for your suggestion about applying a search engine to the online Reporter. Our web manager is currently looking into that.

      As for the “Six Degrees” story, we did a spotlight feature on the Albright web site last year for the 20th anniversary. Two of the alumni creators appeared with Kevin Bacon on SXSW. You can find the story here: http://www.albright.edu/spotlight/SixDegrees.html. I hope you enjoy it!

      Best wishes,
      Jen Stoudt
