Shockingly enough, today is the one year anniversary of this blog. It came to life on a Tuesday--because, really, isn't Tuesday one of the more inspirational days of the week? In that time, 241 posts about Historical Collections & Archives activities, events, and materials have made it to the web. It may not be great literature, it certainly isn't art, but August 22nd does happen to also be the birthday for a number of great writers and artists, such as Ray Bradbury and Dorothy Parker, Henri Cartier-Bresson and Jacques Lipchitz. Who knows, maybe a little inspiration will flow from our Leonine siblings--and no cracks about our nascent resemblance to Dorothy Parker or a Lipchitz, thanks very much!
Enjoy some cake for us, and let us know how it was.
