Event Description:
The University Libraries and emeritus professor Patsy Watkins have teamed up to demystify the process of doing archival research. Together with Melanie Griffin, assistant head of Special Collections, and Joshua Youngblood, Instruction and Outreach unit head, Watkins has curated an exhibit at University Libraries drawing from images in her 2018 book, It's All Done Gone: Arkansas Photographs from the Farm Security Administration Collection, 1935-1943. Watkins will hold an interview-style presentation with Larry Foley, chair of the Journalism department, followed by a Q&A session on the exhibit and her book April 2 at 5 p.m. in the Special Collections Reading Room. Items from the Special Collections department’s materials related to the FSA, including the Jesse Laurence Charlton Photographs, the Works Progress Administration Historical Records Survey and the Joseph Taylor Robinson Papers, will be available for viewing.

This event is free and open to the public. 

The Libraries and Dr. Watkins thank Bedford Camera & Video for printing and framing 30 photographic reproductions from the Library of Congress' online archive
This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
