Archival Adventures: Glass Lantern Slide Collection

Archival Adventures: Glass Lantern Slide Collection

It's time for an adventure! Destination: 17th-20th centuries. This week we have a collection of glass slides made for the lanterna magica or magic lantern, a slide projector developed in the 17th century. You can learn more about the collection in the finding aid here: https://ead.lib.virginia.edu/vivaxtf/view?docId=oai/lib.vt.edu/repositories/2/resources/3437.oai_ead.xml

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.
