Scranton Family Papers on the Lackawanna Valley Digital Archive

 On October 24th and 25th at the University of Scranton there was a scan-a-thon conducted with members from the University of Scranton's Weinberg Library, U of S History students and their professor Dr. Adam Pratt, Lackawanna Historical Society, and members of the LVDA and Scranton Public Library working to create this new collection.

Two volumes of the George W. Scranton letters were scanned with the help of the history students. These same students created the metadata that will be used when these files go live on the LVDA! So look for this new collection in 2016 and for more to come. There are 19 volumes of these letters at the Lackawanna Historical Society and we hope to have the whole collection available to researchers.

Thanks to all who helped organize this great event!
