The MSU Archives has had a busy couple of weeks promoting itself and our services. On Thursday, April 23 archivist Portia Vescio gave a joint presentation with history professor Javier Pescador about Title IX era sports and Michigan State University. PowerPoint slides from that presentation are available online.
Portia also gave a lunchtime presentation on April 23 to the East Lansing Prime Time group. She spoke about the history of the women’s course at MSU.
The Archives also participated in Take Your Child to Work Day on April 23. Tours of the archives were offered to those who stopped by.
On May 2 the Archives participated in the David R. Caterino Collector’s Showcase at the Main Branch of the Capital Area District Library in Lansing, Michigan. Archivists passed out collection guides on Lansing and genealogical collections as well as brochures, postcards, and publicity materials.
We will be staffing booths at several more events this summer, so please keep an eye on this page to find out what is coming up.
