Memorial Day

We will close this Friday at 4:45 for the Memorial Day holiday and reopen Tuesday, June 1, at 8am. The photo here is of Memorial Day 1927, from the Chicago Daily News. Left to right are a soldier of the 1920s, a Boy Scout, and a veteran of the Civil War. The photo was retrieved from the American Memory collections housed at the Library of Congress.

SUGGESTION: It would be very helpful (for lack of a better word) if you did a story or blog presenting the students who currently work at Drake so that we could get to know them better!

Great idea! we have run some items on student assistants before, in the LITS Newsletter, but we'll look into doing it here too.
