Do you enjoy learning about local, national, and international history? We are showing off various documents from our collections on October 19. relating to various topics such as the sinking of the Titanic, land grants signed by Patrick Henry, a booklet from the Ku Klux Klan in Kentucky, a letter from Martin Luther King, Jr., and many more! Throughout the day, you can create your own “illuminated manuscript” bookmark.

Check the David L. Rice Library Facebook and Twitter pages or continue to check for update through amUSIngArtifacts for more information. Below, there is a daily schedule of events. If you have questions or comments about ArchivesFest, email archives.rice@usi.edu. We look forward to seeing you there!
