April 8, 2009

If you are interested in Philadelphia's history, particularly the recent history of our neighborhood here at Drexel, you will enjoy the Archives'new online exhibition, The History of Drexel and Powelton Village.

Created by David Kruidenier, Archives intern and iSchool graduate student, the exhibition traces Drexel's growth into the residential neighborhood of Powelton and the conflicts that resulted. The exhibition draws on the records of the Office of Community Affairs, which David has processed, and features many images from Triangle issues of the era.
