Artwork by student W. O. Edson depicting Normal School nurse May Mead "Combating the flu," from the 1919 Klipsun yearbook.Heritage Resources is pleased to share the Spring 2020 edition of our quarterly newsletter, Heritage Highlights. The COVID-19 crisis and the “stay at home” reality has drastically changed our lives and the ways we intersect with each other. This is truly a historic moment. In this issue you will find stories about Western’s current and past efforts to maintain continuity in the midst of crises. We also bid farewell to long-time Special Collections Manager Tamara Belts upon her retirement, and report on early and developing efforts to document the experiences of the campus community during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

We hope you enjoy, and as always, please reach out if you have questions or comments about our collections and programming.
