It's tough being a holiday in June. Just ask Flag Day. Between Memorial Day and July 4th, people are out and about, vacationing, ending classes, and celebrating the beginning of summer. Nobody has time to pay the ol' Red, White, and Blue any mind.
Of all the adopted collections that have come through the ranks, my favorites remain the ones that offer windows into Philadelphia's rich cultural history. The John Neagle papers and related items (Collection 2112), which I recently processed, is one such collection.
