I stumbled upon this event while browsing weekend activities for this weekend at ThisIsHappening.org and this looks like my kind of event – Pittsburgh story telling. A bunch of historians from around Pittbsurgh are digging up some artifacts and stories from the Warhol Museum (I love Andy Warhol’s time capsules), The Homewood Cemetary, Pitt, Chatam and more. I don’t know much about the Archival Happy Hour Group but it looks like this is going to be a pretty amazing story hour.Unbeknownst Pittsburgh! from the Archival Happy Hour Action GroupFriday, Feb. 6, 2009 7pmMary Breed Lecture Hall, Margaret Morrison Building, Carnegie Mellon UniversityFree
A multimedia presentation of Pittsburgh stories and images you’ve never heard of! Eigh of Pittsburgh’s many archival repositories have agreed to raid their Hollinger boxes to bring you unknown and hard to believe stories, photos, songs and movies. Participants include The Carnegie Mellon University Archives, Rivers of Steel, The Historical Society of Western Pennsylvania, University of Pittsburgh, The Archives of the Andy Warhol Museum, Chatham University, and The Homewood Cemetery. Come prepared for opera singers, safety films, time capsules, singing coeds, grown men in togas and 23-Skidoo!
