October is designated by the Society of American Archivists as “American Archives Month.” The SAA calls this month a time to “celebrate the American record” and raise public awareness about the importance of archives to the preservation of American history and culture.
For our part in the celebration, the College Archives is displaying an “Inside Look” at our collection including a display case of various documents and artifacts relating to the history of the college. This display, created by intern Erin Anderson, is located just outside of the archives’ office on the library’s third floor. We will also be offering behind-the-scenes tours of the archives storage and work areas. These two sessions will occur on October 20 at 10:30 am and again on October 26 at 2:30 pm. If you have any questions, please contact Jeff Jenson in the College and Lutheran Church Archives.
