Waverly-Shell Rock High School AP History students rose early this morning to catch a ride to the Hoover Presidential Library. They left at 7:00 a.m. for the 112 mile drive through Iowa farmland. They were coming for a chance to do primary research, to hold the real deal in their hands — to look at the stuff history books are made from.
Thanks to Rick, Ken, and Sarah for driving the students to the Hoover Presidential Library!
Look above and you’ll see “History in the Making!”
Archivists Matt Schaefer, Craig Wright, and Spencer Howard pulled 61 boxes from the Archives collection. Topics ranged from WWI famine relief to the Stock Crash. Just think, this might be the dawn of a new career.
