Making mention of periodicals that we receive at the PRC Seminary library (cf. yesterday’s post), today on our history/archive day we can report on the latest publication from the Joint Archives of Holland and the History Research Center of Hope College and Western Seminary in Holland – the Summer 2016 edition of The Joint Archives Quarterly.
This fine little newsletter is always filled with fascinating stories on the history of Holland, MI and surrounding areas. And yes, the opening article in this summer issue is on the great Holland fire of Oct.8-9, 1871. But there is much more in it too, such as a major article on misconceptions of the religious life of Hope College in the late 20th century.
Did you know about this significant event in west Michigan history?! If you subscribed to the JA Quarterly you would! But you may also find some of the articles online free – follow the link. Or, you may stop in at our Seminary library and browse this issue and others like it.
It’s good to know your history, starting with that close to us. 🙂
