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.

    #TBT Today’s Throwback Thursday photo is LSU’s entire undergraduate student body showing some school spirit in 1923. We don’t know the occasion but we like the photo. Give us a “like” if you feel the same! Baton Rouge photographer Jasper Ewing took this shot and hundreds of others around the LSU campus from around 1910 to 1940. Some of Ewing’s early work can be found here in the LSU University Archives Photograph Collection: http://cdm16313.contentdm.oclc.org/cdm/landingpage/collection/LSU_UAP. His work appears in other collections as well. Photo source: Department of Military Science Records, RG #A0602, Louisiana State University Archives, LSU Libraries, Baton Rouge, LA.
