For those of you who had asked me about the calendar that Lynn showed at the last staff meeting (and that Mary Reeves won) here’s some info about it and how you can have one of your own! I had posted this to our Special Collections blog before the holidays, but wanted to share it with everyone since there is some interest among other staff, too. (I think the WFU bookstore has them in stock now, but you can also order them from the Asgard Press site)…
This past summer (remember when it was hot)? we received a request from a researcher who wanted to see our collection of old football programs, especially the ones from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. He said he wanted to make a calendar of some of the covers, and he spent several days looking through and photographing our collection. We thought that was a nice idea, but didn’t realize what a great final product would result! Lo and behold, one day a few weeks ago, I received a box of the new calendars and they look GREAT. We are excited that part of our collection made this publication possible, and we hope that lots of folks will want one for themselves. No, we don’t get any money from the sales of the calendars, but it’s a great tool for showcasing the unique materials that are in the Archives and letting people know that we are here. If you know a Wake alum, current student, or anyone who loves WFU, this would be a great gift.
