Congratulations to the Class of 2011!

“This month will turn out into the world many thousands of young men and young women with college diplomas… They could not have been graduated without subjecting themselves to a great deal of severe mental discipline… One great of a college education is a better appreciation of the real values of life.”

From “Calvin Coolidge Says” a syndicated newspaper column June 6, 1931

The Calvin Coolidge Presidential Library & Museum employs work-study students from nearby Smith College. Congratulations to our graduates Veronica Tjioe who worked here 5 semesters and Beans Velocci who worked here 3 semesters! These amazing future historians, along with Sophie Glidden-Lyon ’12 (who will return in the Fall for her 7th and final semester here) have been the behind the scenes magic that assist the one paid staff with research, creating exhibits, processing, re-housing, indexing, scanning, adding to the collections database and more!
