Archives and Special Collections Open House

Description:

On November 13th from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. the Archives and Special
Collections will hold an Open House. Visitors will learn fascinating
stories from Lowell Thomas’s past: about growing up in a turn of the
century mining town, about navigating the line between journalistic ideals
and sensationalism, about how Thomas escaped obscurity to become world
famous, and about the tongue-in-cheek games of New Deal Politics.
Please stop by to view highlights from our collections, including original
letters written by Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and John Jay, a stone
that was once part of the famed London Bridge, a gem from the Tomb of the
Mughal conqueror Babur, and a brick from the tomb of St. Peter.
Additionally, a newly-rediscovered color aerial photograph of Marist
College in 1963 will be displayed, as well as items from the College’s rich
history.


Visitors will also have the opportunity to see our closed stacks areas and
learn more about what we do in the Archives and Special Collections.

The Archives and Special Collections is located on the ground floor of the
Library in room 134. Light refreshments will be served.
