Today is a somber day in the History Department, as we have to say goodbye to our two incredible archival fellows from Rhodes College. Lauren and Jordan have been with us for the past 8 weeks and have made an impact that will be felt for years and years to come.
In addition to expertly processing and digitizing the Perre Magness and Arthur Webb collections, they have processed three other collections that will be unveiled shortly. That is an unbelievable amount of work to accomplish in one summer. But perhaps what the staff here in the Memphis Room will remember most is that they remained enthusiastic, good-natured and genuinely fun to work around. We simply loved having them here.
Best of luck to you both, as you move on through school and into the rest of your lives. And remember, you can always stop by for a visit… (We won’t make you index a single thing!)
