Tomorrow and Saturday, UMW Libraries will be hosting our third annual History Harvest for Reunion Weekend.
Special Collections and University Archives, including our Digital Archiving Lab, will also be open from noon to 3:00 PM tomorrow. We will have a display featuring artifacts from the archives (including those early eye-popping red and green beanies!) and staff to scan your treasures. You can contribute originals or digital copies to the University Archives’ collection, so they can be preserved for future users and take home a bookmark or postcard memento from our collections to share with family and friends.
Last year, we enjoyed meeting and talking with many alums and were particularly honored to have the Class of ’66 donate their scrapbook to the University Archives. We even learned more about their freshmen tradition of Peanut Week in November!
This year Reunion Weekend is celebrating class years ending with 2 and 7, so we hope to see some rockin’ materials from our 50th anniversary Class of 1967. Looking forward to seeing you!
