Symposium at the National Archives at Atlanta

The National Archives at Atlanta is the repository of approximately 13,000 cubic feet of records documenting the impact and legacy of the Tennessee Valley Authority. These historic sources are ripe for new scholarship and discovery. This year's symposium encourages research in these diverse records, features scholars whose published works were based on these holdings, and promotes the discovery of new scholars from universities and colleges across the Southeast and the nation.

Docent Program to Begin
at NARA Atlanta

A new component will be offered to school groups starting next year. Today school groups get a tour, time to look at original documents in the text room, and independent viewing of the Hands- On History and the document scans featured in our Public Vaults area. The new component will take the place of the public viewing of the exhibits and will consist of one of the primary source or archival activities described below. Joel Walker, Education Specialist, is recruiting volunteers to docent these activities. Four training days are scheduled this summer covering three programs per each training day. Sign up and be the first generation of docents at NARA Atlanta!

To sign up or if you have questions, contact joel.walker at or call 770-968-2530.

Training Dates: Monday June 9, Tuesday June 17, Wednesday June 25, and Thursday, July 31.
