The Beehive: the official blog of the Massachusetts Historical Society

This Week @ MHS

This week we continue to offer our exhibition History Drawn with Light: Early Photographs from the Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society daily (except Sundays) 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  And anyone interested in 20th century environmental history should plan to be at the MHS at noon on Wednesday, 3 August, when research fellow Jared Taber of University of Kansas presents his work on his project "Reorganizing the Riverine Landscape: The Environmental History of Industrial Decline in the 20th Century" as part of our brown bag lunch series. 


For educators still hoping to earn a few PDPs this summer, there are still a few spots available in next week's workshop Ratification! The People Debate the Constitution, 1787-1788.  This two-day workshop (August 9 and 11) featuring author/historian Pauline Maier is presented by the Massachusetts Historical Society and the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, and is open to all educators in Massachusetts and Maine. The registration fee is $50.00 and includes a signed copy of Pauline Maier's book, Ratification, 12 PDPs, and a kit full of classroom resources that you can use with your own students for Constitution Day and beyond.  Contact Kathleen Barker for more information or to register.
