School Program Season Begins
Drew Archival Library
During the last week of February, the staff of DRHS collaborated with Duxbury High School students to develop and install exhibitions on World War II. Students were introduced to archival material and three-dimensional objects associated with Duxbury's experience in the war; they were then asked to select, research, and display the exhibits using appropriate materials and techniques. Other classes came in to read and examine World War II materials. A special thank you to high school teachers Mr. Mael and Mr. Craft for collaborating with the DRHS.
Throughout the spring and fall seasons, the DRHS offers school programs to more than 1,000 Duxbury school children each year. Programs range from lectures on abolition, to introducing third graders to the development of the village of Duxbury. The Drew Archives also hosts high school interns who work on collections projects as part of their school curriculum. All of these programs are offered free of charge as they are an important part of the DRHS's mission.
