Preservation Programs at St. Louis Takes Off at Lambert Airport!
When walking to the baggage carousel to claim your luggage, do you ever look at displays or advertisements along the way? Do you learn something new, or do you just walk on by? The St. Louis Preservation Programs and The National Archives at St. Louis hopes that their display at the Lambert-St. Louis International Airport will cause a traveler to STOP, and discover something new!
Two 29 foot-long display windows across from the baggage claim at Terminal One (the main terminal) will exhibit images and information about NARA’s preservation and archival programs in St. Louis. A brief history of the 1973 fire at the National Personnel Record Center, photos of staff at work and a diagram of the steps to recovering a burned record inform viewers about the work undertaken at the St. Louis Preservation labs. In addition, images of prominent military and civilian employees from the past, along with a listing of archival holdings, entices viewers to learn about NARA records available to the general public.
The display will be up from October 1 through December 30. If you’re traveling to or through Saint Louis soon—take a second to peruse the windows and find out about another amazing Saint Louis treasure!
