Celebrating American Archives Month:

Tradition, Folklife, & Scholarship

In 2013, the Special Collections department of the Albin O. Kuhn Library partnered with Maryland Traditions and the Maryland State Arts Council to transfer five archival collections relating to folklife traditions and scholarship in Maryland to UMBC. This exhibit will showcase the history of folklife scholarship and documentation in Maryland and will highlight items from the five new collections: the Maryland Folklife Program records, the Maryland Traditions records, the Dorothy Howard papers, the Ola Belle Reed collection, and the Jason Pate collection.
