4/22/24. The Complete Collection

Valeria R -

The entire Old Glory collection has been organized, labelled, and completed! This singular collection takes up nine entire boxes which is quite a lot, considering most exhibits fit in one folder and sit in one box along with multiple other exhibits.

We have also completed the finding aid. Here are the final Old Glory categories, along with their locations, taken from the finding aid.
