“Despite my everyday grumblings and bewilderment, I have never been more appreciative of how indescribably wonderful this life can be.” ~ Walter Tunis

There’s a great exhibit in Special Collections right now called¬†The Immigrant Experience and Contribution in Appalachian Coalfields. It was put together in partnership with the Appalachian Center. We provided audio clips for the listening kiosk. Pretty cool stuff, and I really liked it sitting beside the old instruments. What a nice juxtaposition between the old and the new. You may recall that last week we¬†welcomed Alessandro Portelli. His talk was also sponsored in part by the Appalachian Center. I think they’re cookin’ with gas over in the Appalachian Center. I’m darned proud of ’em, and even prouder to be Appalachian (as if you couldn’t tell).
