Curator Talk 2/6: Why Did You Save That?

Join us in the Special Collections Library from 11:10am-12:00pm  Wednesday mornings during this semester for fascinating talks led by faculty, librarians, archivists, and curators.   The talks take place weekly in the Special Collections Reading Room on the second floor of the Central & Divinity Libraries building.  This event is free and open to the public.

Things end up in the archives that sometimes make one ponder the reasoning behind why the object was saved.  Vanderbilt University and George Peabody College memorabilia can tell you interesting stories about the students, faculty and staff who have lived and worked on campus since the beginning of the institutions.  Join Associate Director of Special Collections Kathy Smith for an entertaining trip through time using objects found in the University Archives.
