COLLABORATION LEADS TO NEW AUDIENCES

They sought us out as a source, and visited the archives in search of photos taken before WWI, of Armenians in Massachusetts. Thanks to this collaboration with Global Boston, our photos are now accessible to wider audiences. 

The Global Boston digital project recognizes that "immigrants have long been a vital force in shaping economic, social, and political life." Take a look:
