Event Description

Harvesting local and political history will be presented by Devin Hunter. He will offer a behind-the-scenes look at History Harvest, a national project for gathering, recording and digitizing, history-related artifacts, which owned by the public and likely would have been lost or forgotten. He will talk about some of the more unusual items digitized from the two "harvests" that were conducted by his students. Hunter is an assistant professor of history at the University of Illinois Springfield.
