CHS From the Vault: September Edition-“Tragedies”

September 4, 2014 · CHS in the News

This month Executive Director Jody Blankenship and Research & Collections Associate Karen DePauw join FoxCT’s anchor Tim Lammers for another edition of From the Vault, this time focusing on tragedies in Connecticut.

Every month the Connecticut Historical Society brings part of its collection to FoxCT’s morning show, highlighting different themes that coincide with the Hartford Courant’s 250th anniversary celebration. September’s theme is “tragedies”, and to illustrate the resilience of the people in Connecticut Jody and Karen brought items ranging from an 1944 Circus Fire Scrapbook full of images and newspaper cuttings to a nine year old’s shadow box to remember 9/11. Check out the video below to learn more about these items and others and come back next month for Hartford History month.
