In late June, the Cambridge Historical Society participated in the eleventh annual Cambridge Open Archives, a free event organized by the Cambridge Historical Commission where archival repositories around Cambridge open their doors to visitors and highlight thematic collections.

This year’s theme was “Politics and Activism in Cambridge (and Beyond).” Visitors to the Society had the opportunity to learn about and view our archival collections, including the records of the Cambridge Branch of the Massachusetts Indian Association, underground newspapers and handouts from the 1969 Harvard Strike, and the records of The Bee. Also on view were the Serjeant Family Letters, which were recently digitized with the generous support of the Massachusetts Society of the Cincinnati. 

Thanks to all who attended and see you next year!
