Celebrate American Archives Month
October is American Archives Month and New York State's theme for Archives Week (October 8-14) this year is Archives-Bridges from the Past to the Present. Events began a week early as is customary in the Capital Region with the Annual Capital Region Archives Dinner at the Executive Mansion on October 4th. The featured speaker was author Joseph Persico and the evening was capped off for attendees as they were treated with a visit to the Mansion's second floor.
The Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives commemorates Archives Week with the program "University in Exile: Refugee Scholars, the New School for Social Research, and the German and Jewish Intellectual Émigré Collection" sponsored by the University Libraries, Center for Jewish Studies, and the College of Arts and Sciences on Thursday, October 12th at 4pm in the Standish Room of the Science Library.
