Three Brothers, one Civil War, and a Collection of Family Papers
The Eddy family lived in Plymouth, Michigan, and the three Eddy brothers -- Willard, William Hannahs, and Clark -- served in the Michigan 2nd and 24th Michigan Volunteer Infantry Regiments in the Civil War. This incredible collection contains family portraits from the 1850s to the 1870s, Civil War correspondence, a family Bible, and more.
Don’t Store Your Data Like the Empire in Star Wars
A major plot point of the film Rogue One had Rebels stealing digital data from the Empire's vast archive. Which got us thinking about the Bentley's digital data. We asked a digital curation archivist for insights into Bentley digital collections, and how users can access them. Hint: it's easier than what the Rebels did.
