Vermont Archives Month takes place annually in October within the context of American Archives Month—a collaborative effort by archival organizations and repositories around the nation to highlight the importance of archives.
In collaboration with other institutions, VHRAB co-sponsors a number of Archives Month events each year.
2015 Vermont Archives Month events include:
- Counterfeiting and Forgery in Vermont, presented by Mariessa Dobrick on October 10, 2015 (co-sponsored by the Vermont Historical Society)
History of the Camels Hump Bomber Crash, presented by Brian Lindner on October 14, 2015 (co-sponsored by the Vermont State Archives & Records Administration)
Eddy Family of Spirit Mediums, presented by Jason Smiley, on October 28, 2015 (co-sponsored by the Vermont State Archives & Records Administration)
For locations, times and additional information, see the Online Public Calendar and look for the tag "Archives Month Event!"
We encourage archives, historical societies, and other institutions throughout the state to hold their own events to celebrate the state’s documentary heritage and the work of those individuals who are entrusted with preserving it.
