You’re invited: Get ideas for telling the history of CALS and your department

Please join members of the CALS History Work Group on Monday, February 23 for coffee, conversation and a look at how the group is working to preserve the rich history of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. This is a great opportunity to hear and share ideas about how you can capture and tell the interesting and important stories of the people and accomplishments that made your department what it is today.

We are excited to be joined by David Null from University Archives. David will provide an overview of the UW’s archival process and give us some pointers on how to determine what to save, and how Archives can help conserve our stories and the objects that tell them.

Retired and active CALS faculty and staff are encouraged to attend. The meeting will be Monday, February 23 at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room at the UW Credit Union (3500 University Avenue).

We will talk about opportunities to preserve and annotate the documents, photos, and objects that tell the stories of the people, departments and centers within CALS over the decades.

Prior to the meeting, think about stories you believe are important for CALS to preserve. What photos, documents, publications or artifacts can help tell these stories?
