Capturing the Stories of Our Alumni: Question and Answer with University Archivist, Rob Sieczkiewicz
By: Jenny James Lee
Capturing and preserving its own history is essential to any organization's survival; at Drexel such is the responsibility of Rob Sieczkiewicz, our University Archivist. His team of three staff collects, catalogs and makes available the original materials that tell Drexel’s story – and those collections are growing.
Correspondence between presidents, faculty and students change through years
By: Samuel Davidson
A reception was held in Hagerty Library Feb. 22 for a new exhibit that will display archived letters to Drexel's presidents, in order to showcase the shared concerns and thoughts of over 100 years of presidents, students, parents and alumni.
The letters cover a wide variety of topics - some modern, and many now quaintly archaic. Viewing the display, one finds a wide spectrum of letters, from modern crisp printouts and blurred faxes to the ornate script of handwritten letters and the uniform type of typewriters. The entertainment of the exhibit is most often found in the latter most of these documents.
