With the Memorial Day holiday this coming weekend, the MHS will be closed on Saturday, 28 May and Monday, 30 May. As a result of the Saturday closure, there will be no building tour this coming weekend. The tour will return on Saturday, 4 June. And do not forget that time is running out for our current exhibition, History Drawn with Light. The exhibition closes on 4 June, and with the holiday closures there are only nine days left to come in and view it. So plan on stopping in this week.
Also, an event that is on the horizon, although not happening this week, is a one day conference Off the Record: Telling Lives of People Hidden in Plain Sight. The conference, co-sponsered by the MHS along with Mass Humanities, the University of Massachusetts Amherst Program in Public History, and the Joseph P. Healey Library at the University of Massachusetts Boston, takes place on Monday, June 6 at the Hogan Campus Center, College of the Holy Cross in Worcester. Participants must register for the conference and pay a registration fee of $65.00.
