    DePaul University Special Collections and Archives Department is honored to announce the recent donation of papers and artifacts by Sister Helen Prejean, CSJ, noted advocate for death-row inmates, and death penalty opponent.  Sister Helen’s extensive donation includes her correspondence with prison inmates, records documenting her work with anti-death penalty organizations, and manuscripts of her books Dead Man Walking and Death of Innocents, as well as props used in the film adaptation of Dead Man Walking. The initial deposit of records will be open for research by early 2012, and will be supplemented by future transfers from Sister Helen.

    History Fair events are soon upon us and your involvement is necessary to provide a quality judging experience for students in elementary or high schools.  You may see brilliance…or you may see the best a student or school can do…but you have an opportunity to make a difference in students’ education.

    This is a chance to both fairly assess student work and turn students on to libraries and history by reinforcing their efforts!

    Please join us at a four-hour Saturday event or a weekday paper judging session.  Consider going with a group of CAA members and turning it into a social event (pubs such as Krolls is not to far from IIT for an after-judging event).

    See History Fair Web site for information about volunteering.
