Archival Adventures: Blacksburg Virginia Odd Fellows Records

Archival Adventures: Blacksburg Virginia Odd Fellows Records

It's time for an adventure! Join our community collections archivist, Anthony Wright de Hernandez, for a livestream on Twitch! Every week we explore and discuss materials from Special Collections and University Archives covering topics including university history, NASA pioneers, architecture, science fiction, cooking, LGBTQ+ history, Black history, urban legends, and more. Recordings of previous streams are available on the Libaries' Youtube page.

This week, we head to the early 20th century with the Blacksburg, Virginia Odd Fellows Records, learning about this fraternal organization for Black men and its history here. If you want to learn a little in advance, you can check out a blog post about the collection here: https://scuablog.lib.vt.edu/2017/02/09/grand-united-order-of-odd-fellows-tadmore-light-lodge-no-6184-blacksburg-va/ or the finding aid here: https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=oai/lib.vt.edu/repositories/2/resources/1516.oai_ead.xml
