A large number of results packets have been added to The 3NR Results Archive over the past few days. We have about 50 packets in the queue to process and post and will continue adding them to the archive as they are finished. A big thank you to Tim Alderete for his contribution to this project: almost all of what is currently available from the 1990s is courtesy of Tim’s personal archive.
Many gems can be found in these results.
For example, the complete preliminary round results packet from the 1991 Barkley Forum for High Schools at Emory University—held 20 years ago next weekend—is available for perusal. You can’t tell from the packet, but a search of Emory’s own “Hall of Champions” page reveals that Upper Arlington’s Chris Barth and Abe Newman (coached by Marie Dzuris, now the coach of Centerville High School) defeated Omaha Westside’s Jason Patil and Paul Skiermont (coached by G. David Richardson) to claim the title. The top speaker was Greg Huber from St. Frances de Sales, an all-male Catholic high school in Toledo, Ohio. Huber went on to attend Emory University and is now an Associate Professor of Political Science at Yale University. Interestingly, the top speaker at the Barkley Forum in 1991 received 116 high-low points—identical to the points received by the 2010 top speaker, Andrew Markoff of the Bronx High School of Science.
A lot more awaits those willing to dive into the archives. As always, please let me know if you have something to contribute.
