Lunch and Learn on November 13
“Taming the Monster: Conserving a Forgotten Map” is the topic of the November 13 virtual Lunch and Learn at the Georgia Archives. The event starts at noon. Sigourney Smuts, Georgia Archives conservator, is the speaker and will explore the restoration and conservation of an 1893 Fulton County map. The large map, four by ten feet, rolled, was found in an unlabeled box. She will demonstrate how she brought the map back to life. The lecture is free. It’s a Microsoft Teams Virtual live event, to link to it go to https://tinyurl.com/y4bjz7wd. Test it the day before to be sure you can link up. You also can watch on the web via the Georgia Archives Facebook page. See GeorgiaArchives.org for further information or email Penny Cliff at Penelope.email@example.com.
