Stranger Shoes

The new season of Stranger Things is out and it contains a snippet that links to our very own Special Collections & Archives department. The new season is about a newly opened Starcourt Mall which has become the focal point of the town causing other stores to be run out of business. While everyone is at the mall, there are power fluctuations that trigger Will’s (the main character’s) awareness of something not so good.

All the stamps I loved this month

Over the past month I’ve been working with records in the Anne Innis Dagg fonds for an upcoming project. Although Dagg has published extensively about topics ranging from Canadian wildlife and camels to gender discrimination in academia and the prevalence of anthropomorphizing in science research reporting, she is best known for her ground breaking field research of the giraffe.
