Horror & Occult Classics

With Halloween coming up soon, I found it fitting for my first blog post as the new Special Collections & Archives Co-op student to follow a theme of the supernatural. When I first started working here in the Rare Book Room, I quickly realized that there would be all sorts of random topics covered in the vast collection we have down here on the first floor of the Dana Porter Library. Luckily, there are plenty of books and magazines that fit perfectly within the themes of Halloween.

Today's blog post features a rather interesting item that we've been including in displays for years.

Welcome to the Special Collections & Archives blog!

Astute readers will already know that Special Collections & Archives has been posting interesting images from the archives every week for #tbt (or sometimes #FlashbackFriday, if we forget) on the Library's Instagram page.

As we go about our work, we frequently come across interesting items that we would like to share with the community, but that are not so well suited to Instagram. And so we have created this blog!
