“When Archives Take Flight: The Bridgewater College Birding Journal, 1918 and 1947- 1950” with Stephanie Gardner

The program for the Rockingham Bird Club‘s December meeting will be presented by HMN Stephanie Gardner. The public is invited.

While inventorying treasures of the library vault, Bridgewater College Special Collections Librarian Stephanie Gardner rediscovered a historic birding notebook. This ledger has secrets to share and a few mysteries to explore. Stephanie will present a story about bringing modern methods of preservation and access to a historic manuscript and meet the fascinating people (and the birds) who make it a one-of-a-kind primary source.
