Friday in the archives

This week Brian and I finished an addition to CMU. Student Government Association. It is an ongoing collection. He is currently the historian for SGA. Three of my students have consecutively served in that position, Mark, Kipp and now Brian. Brian is now processing a collection about the Enbridge pipeline going under the Mackinac Bridge. Then he is going to process signed posters of entertainers at CMU.


As part of her internship Jen started processing the Court of Appeals series of Justice Weaver's papers on the Michigan Supreme Court. When she isn't working on her internship, Jen is processing Channel 9 & 10 film. SK will return to help with film later this term.

Cody is almost done processing an addition to CMU. Park Library records from our last dean. He is going to start his internship next week processing the Beemer family papers documenting an early farm family and teacher in Clare, Michigan, right after the Civil War. I haven't been able to get his photo yet.

Jordan is coming in today. She and I have a lot of smaller collections in assorted formats to work on. Suli will also be back later this term and next term after he finishes his thesis. So, I have a wonderful group of students this year to help me process in the archives.
