Back to School

Students heading back to school this month do not just have to worry about lunches, homework, teachers and friends.  In a few weeks, they will be rounded up for class pictures.  Kids will think about what to wear and how to style their hair for the image that will adorn their living rooms for the next year.  Some are good, some are bad, but there are always the memorable ones.

Like proud parents, the SI Archives has collected departmental pictures over the years to remember Smithsonian staff.  And though we may not place them in a frame, we try to upload them to the Collections Search Center for all to enjoy.  Here are some of my favorite "class pictures" found in the Archives.
