Every year, the archivists pick a costume that incorporates archives’ signature white gloves. This year we picked Minnie Mouse! We even have a Minnie Mouse connection in the archives – The Fox Theater hosted the Tucson chapter of the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1930s. Check out the adorable photo of some Tucson Mouseketeers at an event at the Fox below.
