Southern New England Telephone Company women’s basketball team, 1927

Come visit the exhibit Workers at Play: Baseball Teams, Basketball Competitions and Company Picnics, this weekend, on Sunday, July 29, between 2 and 4, and meet the exhibits curators Kyle Lynes and Laura Smith!  We’ve had a great response to the exhibit and we’re looking forward to more opportunities to show it off.

Parking on campus is easy on the weekend and all attendees should be able to park near the Dodd Research Center, on Whitney Road or close by.  We’ll have some lovely refreshments, plus the opportunity to see the other exhibits that the UConn Libraries has put up, available in Homer Babbidge Library.  For more information about the summer exhibits please visit at http://www.lib.uconn.edu/about/exhibits/.

Email me at laura.smith@lib.uconn.edu if you have questions about the reception or about the exhibit.  We’re going to start the traveling schedule soon so let me know if you want your archives, library or school to host it.

Laura Smith, Curator for Business, Railroad and Labor Collections
