    Time changes everything, and not always for the better.  
Apparently, pressures from a changing society, and an attempt for the
"Old Drumm" to find it's place in it, failed.  Either with or without
the Drumm Board of Trustees permission, the new superintendent
who took over the helm in the late 1970's, decided to create the
"New Drumm" with different values and work ethics.  Remnants of
the "Old Drumm", including ribbons, trophies and awards, etc. were
discarded and thrown into a dumpster.  When Mr. Berkemeier and
Russell Burton learned of this, they rescued as many items as they
could.  With the ribbons from the dumpster and those that were "over
looked" at Drumm, made a total of 3,740 ribbons of the original
5,000 plus collection.  These ribbons are alphabetized on this
website.  On the "link", Books About The Andrew Drumm Institute,
is a book entitled "The Ribbon Collection" which contains pictures
of the reframed ribbons, and is available through the Mid-Continent
Public Library.
