Archival Adventures: Electric Vehicles with the H. H. Skinner Papers

It's time for an adventure! Destination: 1910s! This week: The H. H. Skinner papers present the case for electric vehicles … from the 1910s. Skinner was an engineer with the Narragansett Electric Lighting Company and this collection includes various materials about that company's venture into the marketing of electric vehicles. 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/1567.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.
