Summer Camp at the National Archives! This week budding genealogists are joining us for Genealogy Camp in the Boeing Learning Center. 

This hands-on, week-long camp for kids introduces the basics of genealogy research and the resources of the National Archives. Campers are using ship manifests and census records to trace an immigrant family’s arrival in the United States in the early 20th century.

Picasso’s 1931 illustrations for a Balzac short story - the best thing since the iconic artist’s rare 1934 etchings for a naughty ancient Greek comedy. 
For more exquisite cross-pollination of literature and art, see Salvador Dalí’s drawings for Don Quixote and Henri Matisse’s etchings for Ulysses.

This graphic, built perfectly for Twitter’s new card display, is exactly what digital newsrooms should be doing. This is adaptive journalism for mobile, social. Props to The Atlantic for being #onit.

"Edgar Coffman, a renter farmer in Anderson County, Tennessee, near Clinton. He is also a preacher for the Holiness sect.", 10/23/1933
From the series: Lewis Hine Photographs for the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), 1933

Some interesting background on this series from the “Scope & Content” note in our online catalog:

In 1933, after submitting an outline for an introductory photographic survey of Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) projects, Lewis W. Hine was hired to do a one month (10/20/33-11/26/33) assignment in East Tennessee. Although he was quite pleased with the initial results of this assignment, Hine was unable to continue along the same lines because the TVA preferred that he instead photograph charts, plans, and installations. This series consists of the original photographic negatives and corresponding modern prints of mountaineer families forced to vacate their homes and lands because of the construction of Norris Dam, rock drilling at the dam site, Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers, industries in Kingsport, and examples of local folk crafts and culture.
