Transcribe-a-thon: Help Write the History of Williams

On Wednesday March 1, join us in the Stetson Reading room from 7:00-9:00 pm to learn to transcribe historic documents. Turning handwritten manuscripts into typed documents helps to make them more discoverable, readable, and searchable. We will focus on documents relating to the early history of Williams College, including a diary and letters written by the first President of Williams College, Ebenezer Fitch. Enjoy refreshments, company, and learn to read and interpret cursive. No prior experience is necessary!
