Welcome to the Ingalls Library & Museum Archives!
At the north end of the reference collection, humbly housed in beige cabinets, rest thousands of postcards. These penny postcard images, sent as modern novelties, carry messages of well being and adventure. In this series we follow our intrepid traveler from city to city on a world tour.
The story of the brave men and women who worked to rescue Europe’s greatest art treasures during World War II has been brought to the silver screen in The Monuments Men. But did you know that monuments men also served in Japan? When the war ended and the allied occupation of Japan began, civilian monuments men were charged with protecting and preserving Japanese cultural heritage.
The Ingalls Library collection includes approximately 1,200 currently received periodical titles. That is quite simply, an overwhelming number. This ongoing series features articles that discuss objects included in the museum’s collection of more than 46,000 objects, as well as articles written by museum staff members. Additionally, articles about the museum, its history and activities are noted. New to this feature will be updates on title changes to the Recent Acquisitions area as well as the “Hidden Magazine Rack”: notable titles that do not have a coveted spot in Recent Acquisitions.
