I gave the scan that Colin MacLarty just shared on the mailing list a home on the nLab:
Saunders MacLane,
Bowdoin Summer School 1969
Notes taken by Ellis Cooper (pdf)
Presently the pdf-link points to my Dropbox folder, as I keep forgetting the system password necessary to upload a file of this size to the nLab server. Maybe Mike or Adeel have the energy to upload it.
I wonder if anyone finds anything surprising in the content of the notes, or has it all been absorbed?
The note-taker throws in comments like “What in thunder do you mean by that Maclane?” (p. 142)
I wonder if this is the only extant set of notes? (I don’t know much about the author.)
“What in thunder” sounds like a Mac Lane-ism to me.
he was probably a student in 1969.

That Ellis D Cooper has a facebook page where he lists a long employment history involving college teaching, hardware, software, and electronic music engineering, and highschool teaching. He has recently written a book, Mathematical Mechanics: From Particle to Muscle, involving among other things category theory and modeling skeletal muscle contractions that is suitable for high school AP students.
