"Summer in the Archives"

Sewanee University archivist Annie Armour recently posted the first of what will apparently be a series of "musings" - this initial installment discusses a couple of the interesting things her summer assistants have discovered over the years. I could do without the unexploded grenade, but the 1519 Latin vulgate bible (Nuremberg, with woodcuts) would have been quite a find!

I can't say that I ever discovered anything quite that exciting during several "archives summers" at Union, but they certainly were never boring!

I'll look forward to more of these from Ms. Armour.
