UPDATE - Greeks in Washington - Archival Items NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
This is an update to my August 21, 2016 posting FROM THE JUNE 11, 2017 NEWSLETTER -
MAJOR STEP FORWARD FOR THE "MUSEUM WITHOUT WALLS"
For the past year the items in the Greeks in Washington collection have been photographed and included in a searchable database. The photos and descriptions of the items in ten categories (textiles, costumes and clothing, photos/slides, documents, audio recordings, film/video/DVD, bound volumes/printed materials, newspapers, art work and other artifacts). They are now accessible from the home page www.greeksinwashington.org. Simply "click" on THE COLLECTION and follow the prompt.
Since 2009, date, the Museum has received over 600 items that serve to help share the stories of the Greek experience in Washington State. These items have been donated or loaned to the Museum and are cataloged and preserved in the Museum archive. Items are organized by category. There is also a special section dedicated to the AHEPA (American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association) family.
