A blogger I try and follow, Joe Herring, Jr., recently wrote a post about one of my favorite items in Special Collections, Kerr County; the history, compiled by students in the Texas history class. This book is a great example of transferable skills for students. A high school class went out and gathered this information, mostly oral histories from local families, and the local paper compiled it and printed it for distribution. It is also a great example of committing intentional acts of memory.
I think I would have liked to meet the teacher, Mrs. Kate Franklin. You can read more of Joe’s post here. Or, if you are more interested in the real deal, contact me and I will be happy to set up a time for you to view it at Logan Library.
