November 2008: Off the Archival Wall, Part 2 --
In the Archival Seminar Room



The Archival Seminar Room, adjacent to the Manuscript Reading Room, is where we conduct class and other large-group orientations to the Archives. We also use it to showcases a few of the posters and other graphic pieces from our collections. Displayed around the room are the poster from InterVarsity's very first missionary convention 1946 in Toronto (before relocating to the University of Illinois campus in Champaign-Urbana for seven decades), and several evangelism posters including Jesus' parable of the Good Shepherd. For our many online guests who don't come near our Wheaton facility (there were more than 488,000 of you last year), we want to share these beautiful graphic depictions and appeals with you. View all the Archives posters in the Archival Seminar Room. Also view all the Archives posters in the Reading Room.
