Come discover the photographs, documents, films, maps, and more held in the incredible archival collections in and around Houston!The event is free for everyone and a great way to experience Houston’s diverse history. The participating organizations will show off their amazing collections, inform attendees about local resources, and offer advice on caring for their own important photographs, letters, and digital media. Other attractions include a film screening featuring archival footage and an oral history booth to record your Houston story for future generations (like a StoryCorps for Houston!). Confirmed speakers include Mike Vance, Janet Wagner (and more!) who will discuss various ways they have used archives. At the Preservation Station, you can bring your cherished materials, such as photographs, old letters, and family scrapbooks, to learn from professionals how to best preserve your memories. The Archivists of the Houston Area (AHA!) is a professional organization that exists to increase contact and communication between archivists and those working with records, to provide opportunities for professional development, and to promote archival repositories and activities in the greater Houston, Texas area.Contact: Emily Vinson, evinson@uh.edu, 713-743-7696
