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!

Our Summer Fellows

It’s summertime in the Memphis Room, which means our Archival Fellows are hard at work!  Regan Adolph and Lanier Flanders are burning through a lot of projects (which we’ll tell you much more about soon), but for now here are some candid images of our wonderful scholars working in the Memphis Room.

Celebrate our Archival Fellows…

… and the opening of the Rowlett Paine Collection, the W.C. Handy Beale Street Collection, and the Memphis Women’s Suffrage Collection.  Help us thank our three wonderful archival fellows from Rhodes College — Chris Hanewald, Mathew Jehl, and Laura Fogarty — for all of their incredible work this summer.
