Processing a New Donation: The Boehmer Collection

In honor of  American Archives Month the staff at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum would like highlight once again one of their most exciting collections in our permanent archival collection.  So please read and enjoy a post from our Sister Affiliate!


The archives here at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum house over 6,000 items including books, documents, maps, letters, newspapers, postcards, photographs, and much more.  A recent acquisition to the museum is going to raise that number of items by at least 3,000 more.  In August of 2009 the museum received the Boehmer Collection of Photographs.  This unique and unprecedented collection of photographs is quite possibly the most exhaustive record of the Seminole Tribe for the time period of the 1930s thru the 1960s.
