DIGITAL MEMORIES: General Chrisman Stays On
Special Collections and Archives at the University of Idaho Library
announces a new installment in its series of "Digital Memories." Digital
Memories focuses on historic artifacts, documents, photographs, and books
from the holdings of Special Collections and Archives. This is a changing
showcase of highlights from our collections.
This issue focuses on West Pointer Edward R. Chrisman, who arrived in Moscow, Idaho in 1894 to teach military science and mathematics. Service in the war with Spain and other
events took him away, but in 1919 he returned to stay. Honored by the Army, the U. S. Congress, the university community, and alumni, General Chrisman died in 1939, one of the university's earliest faculty members.
"Digital Memories" can be accessed through the URL
<http://www.lib.uidaho.edu/special-collections/>. Previous editions
include eastern music about Idaho, early outdoor recreation, and an
unrecorded Thoreau manuscript. Also at this site is information about
Special Collections and its holdings, archival and manuscript descriptions
and inventories, and a link to a massive geographical guide to
repositories of primary source materials. The latter now contains over
5000 entries from around the world.
