Findings Blog

Findings Blog

Library and Archives staff members routinely discover new and surprising items from the museum's vast trove of records and share their discoveries on the Findings blog. Begun in 2009 as part of a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission to digitize five of the museum's archives, Findings has since expanded to share a broad range of photographs, posters, correspondence, drawings, and other ephemera.
