Today is Thanksgiving and the archives is closed in observance, both today Thursday, November 28 and tomorrow Friday, November 29. Today we’re sharing a fun find from one of our manuscript collections, MS 1183 Ronstadt Family Postcard Correspondence. Archivist Caitlin Lampman chose this particular postcard because of the adorable turkey border that surrounds the picture.  The archivists here at AHS hope that your Thanksgiving meal was as abundant and delicious as the pile of veggies this card shows and full of moments to reflect on the things you are glad to have.
