Good Monday morning all! I received this in my email this morning so I thought I’d pass along the information! How often do you get a free event that is just so awesome?! I was just in Atlanta and these Archives are actually fairly easy to get to, though parking may be slightly expensive if you’re not from a big city. I was amazing that we had to pay $10 for parking, but what do I know? Also, just an FYI, beginning October 1, 2012, these archives were opened for public research Monday through Friday and the third Saturday of the month. For more information on the National Archives at Atlanta, please visit http://www.archives.gov/southeast/ . Now onward to the Secret City Symposium!
The National Archives at Atlanta is hosting the symposium Secret City in the Tennessee Hills: From Dogpatch to Nuclear Power on Saturday, September 15. The purpose of this symposium is to promote research in our historically rich records dealing with the Manhattan Engineering District and the Atomic Energy Commission and highlight scholarly works based on these holdings. Pre-registration is required and limited to 200. There is no cost to attend.
