Round three of our “Archives Rewind” series finds us deep in the AHC collections once again. Did you know we’ve produced 150 episodes of Archives on the Air to date?
The purpose of the Archives Rewind is to highlight episodes from our “Archives on the Air” segment that airs on Wyoming Public Media.
“Archives on the Air” can be heard on Wyoming Public Radio Monday through Friday at 8:50 am, 11:50 am, and 6:50 pm or online on Wyoming Public Media’s website.
Let’s rewind the archives for Volume 3…
Episode 30: “Flying Saucers, Like Girls Are Here to Stay” – Frank Scully Papers
Like something out of the X-Files…we want to believe. We’d like to think that Fox Mulder would have gotten along with Frank, and perhaps there’s some unintended relation to Dana?
Episode 37: Sweaty Documents – Climate Change in the American Heritage Center
Here’s something a little different for this program — how about a behind the scenes look at the process of letting received materials acclimate to Wyoming’s climate?
Episode 39: “For All of Large Animals Found in the Sea, Man is the Easiest Prey”
We probably should have saved this highlight for Shark Week. Did you know the release of “Jaws” led to an increase in shark hunting in the United States?
Episode 42: The Ram Snuffbox – The Colket Collection; Toppan Library
Did you know Laramie has it’s own “Cabinet of Wonder“?
That’s a wrap for Volume three of our Archives Rewind. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for Volume 3.
