Archival Adventures: Byron Nelson Cooper Papers

Archival Adventures: Byron Nelson Cooper Papers

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.

Today we explore the Byron Nelson Cooper papers. As head of the Department of Geological Sciences at Virginia Tech, Cooper caused what one might call a tectonic shift, developing it from a fledgling operation into a nationally recognized department. Take a look at the finding aid (bit.ly/Ms1973-004) to see what's in the collection and join us in chat to look at the materials live!

If you are an individual with a disability and desire an accommodation, please email library-event-accessibility-g@vt.edu at least 10 business days prior to the event.
