Postcard Display in Education Resources

Posted in Announcements, Events

The Education Resources Library is pleased to host a display by Jane Snyder titled “A Family History in Postcards,” which is based on the postcard collection of Harriet Irene Genor McKelvy, Ms. Snyder’s great-grandmother. The collection, spanning almost a century, has been organized for Ms. Snyder’s senior project at Baton Rouge Magnet High School. The display includes about twenty-five postcards and quotes from numerous others. It exemplifies the wealth of primary resource materials available in family memorabilia. The display can be seen through March 8 during Library hours.
