Congratulations are in Order!

Today was a momentous day at the Russell Library for one of our devoted student workers, Ross Keong. Since the fall of 2009 Ross has been working diligently to identify photographs in the Zell Miller Papers -- 1,700 folders worth to be exact (to be less exact: many thousands of images). On February 2, 2011 he finished his project!

In celebration, a generous Russell staff member (aka Renna Tuten) brought in a celebratory bottle of sparkling apple juice - which Ross cracked open and distributed to one and all. We toasted to Ross -- who has completed a HUGE project, and whose work will make the images in the Miller collection accessible to researchers. Here's to you Ross!

To see the end results of this project, visit our online database HERE. For more information on the Zell Miller Papers visit the Russell Library website, or email The Richard B. Russell Library is open for research Monday through Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm, except on University Holidays.
