Open House & New Collections

07.28.15---HIS---Open-House---f&p (1)

On Thursday, August 27th, the History Department will be hosting an Open House as a token of our appreciation for all the work done by our Rhodes College Fellows this summer.  Maria and Sandro have done some great work processing and digitizing collections over the past few months.  These collections include: the J. Porter McClean Collection, the Claypool Family Collection,  the Walter R. Streuli Collection, and the Nowag Music Collection.  Their most impressive work, however, was the Nadia Price collection.  Nadia was a local photographer and her collection includes over 600 photographs.

Selections from the Walter R. Streuli Collection, and the Nowag Music Collection have been added to the M Files.  Look for more information next week about the Nadia Price Collection when it is published to Dig Memphis.

Thanks again Maria and Sandro for all the great work!
