Seek and Perhaps Ye Shall Find … Religious Records and Resources for the Study of Alaskan History

On Oct. 22 at 7 p.m., Rose Speranza, assistant archivist at the APRCA, will present “Seek and Perhaps Ye Shall Find … Religious Records and Resources for the Study of Alaskan History.” It will focus primarily on the written records created by various Christian denominations — where they are housed, the type of materials one might expect to find and the uses that can be made of them.

Ted Stevens Day 2013

The Ted Stevens Papers Project celebrated Ted Stevens Day 2013 with a traveling exhibit at the Fairbanks Republican Women’s Club BBQ at the Holm Town Nursery. The exhibit, Women for Stevens: Citizenship, Leadership and Grassroots Participation, highlights materials selected from the Ted Stevens Papers Collection, the papers of the League of Women Voters of Tanana Valley (1964 – 2004), the John and Edith Holm Papers (1958 – 1989), and the Fairbanks Republican Women’s Club Records (1960 – 1987), all housed in the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives.

From the mid-1800s through the present, participation in local women’s clubs often serves as a springboard to develop knowledge and skills that can lead to political organization on national and international levels. The Women for Stevens exhibit revolves around themes of leadership, organizing, fundraising, education and community engagement, featuring items from the early 1972 Women for Stevens campaign, the Alaska Federation of Women’s Clubs 1926 Year Book, memorabilia from fundraisers such as the First Ladies on Parade fashion show and dinner, and scrapbooks from the Fairbanks Republican Women’s Club annual meeting with Senator Stevens as keynote speaker.
