Volume One Special Coverage: Pulling Together While Staying Apart


Stout Alum Produces Woodstock Doc

Ben Rueter

What started as just another concert soon became a pop culture phenomenon. It’s probably “the” concert and if you haven’t figured it out yet, we’re talking about Woodstock 1969. A UW-Stout alum was there. “The fact that I went to Woodstock made me a minor celebrity, very minor,” Joe Nolan said. Years later, Nolan decided to put some of his Woodstock memories on film. The documentary titled A Woodstock Memoir features Woodstock’s significance in music, culture, politics and a brief cameo of UW-Stout’s Clock Tower. Nolan said Woodstock is history but the event invokes feelings that are still relatable today. “People still have the same desires and the need to belong to something,” Nolan said. Nolan credits his education at Stout towards helping him compile his memories of Woodstock on film. The doc is available on DVD via his website woodstockmemoir.com.
