Diary of a Call Slip Girl


Series Finale: A simple farewell                     

George Washington Farewell Address, Broadside.1796.1.OS

All the greats have had them.  George warned of entangling alliances, and Lee remembered those who fought bravely.  There have been songs of goodbye and farewell.  In my farewell, I simply want to say thank you.  Thank you for requesting treasures that I have had the privilege to serve.  Thank you for listening to my stories about these items.  There are still more stories and treasures to find in our manuscript and library collections, but, for now, my call slip has been returned.

Robert E. Lee Farewell Address, Broadside 1865:14

Elaine Hagy worked in the VHS library as a library clerk for two and a half years and is now the VHS Senior Grants Officer.

    Congrats again Elaine on your new job. I know you’re going to miss my frequent requests of a certain Southside Virginia’s family papers. 🙂
