Just a few sample issues of Children’s Museum News.
Though the focus of this blog and our IMLS project is on the university archives and documenting the history of Delaware State University, our special collections do contain some unique items outside of this scope.
One of these items is a run of 55 newsletters dating from 1912-1940 called the Children’s Museum News published by the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences.
These newsletters include information about the museum itself, such as hours, admission, and schedules of events or lectures. There are also articles in each issue on a wide array of topics, but animals are a frequent subject.
A complete inventory of available issues can be found here.
Our complete run is available to use in the archives, so please come visit us if you’d like to see them. More information on our location and hours can be found here.
