On June 13, the Cambridge Historical Society participated in the annual Open Archives, hosted by the Cambridge Historical Commission. Under the direction of our Archivist Maggie Hoffman, we were able to showcase a variety of historical materials from our archival collections, such as the Hodges-Swan family papers and the Harvard Square Defense Fund.

Thank you to everyone who participated and to the Cambridge Historical Commission for organizing Cambridge Open Archives 2018. Check back next year for Open Archives 2019!
