Join the Drexel Archives and Archives Month Philly for Two Exciting Events this October

September 25, 2018

October is American Archives Month, and Drexel University Archives is participating in two (free!) events as part of Archives Month Philly.

Stop by the Free Library of Philadelphia’s Parkway Location on Wednesday, October 10 to see materials documenting what students of days past liked to drink at Drinks in the Archives. You’ll also learn how to make popular drinks from the temperance movement, see brewery ads from the 19th century, and pick up a copy of our specially made recipe booklet so you can drink like a dragon in the comfort of your own home.

Later in the month, you can also see digitized video from our archives collections at Archives Month Philly's newest event, It Came From the Archives, a screening of short films from many Philadelphia institutions, including The Stoogeum (the only museum devoted to Three Stooges memorabilia), the Science History Institute, and the Penn Museum of Archeology and Anthropology. The event will be held Wednesday, October 24th from 7 PM to 9 PM at PhilaMOCA.
