October 30th is #AskAnArchivist Day on Twitter. Following that hashtag is a lot of fun as museums, libraries, and archives take the day to answer questions and share some of the quirkier and more interesting items in their collections.
These two tweets from the Eisenhower Library’s @IkeLibrary Twitter account are a great example to illustrate why I love #AskAnArchivist Day. Seeing the more private (and in this case whimsical) side of public figures helps us better understand them as people.
