Mummies, History, and More with Tricia McEldowney

This week on The Seneca Scene we have an interesting discussion with  Tricia McEldowney who is the Colleges’ Archivist and Special Collections Librarian. Trisha discusses how her love of history, combined with her passion for learning, lead to her joining the HWS Archives. We also hear the story of how HWS came to be the home of a mummy and how the Archives records the history of the Colleges through a variety of resources. Finally, she talks about how the Archives and its team can be a great resource for students – as it was for our Tommy the Traveler team during their initial phase of research.
