If you happen to be traveling through St. Louis this week by way of the Lambert International Airpot, be sure to check out a pair of display cases at Terminal One near the baggage claim area.
The National Archives at St. Louis has installed an exhibit that invites travelers to learn more about genealogy research, as well as how to use social media to learn more about our holdings and services. The exhibit comes down on January 10, so don’t miss your chance to see it!
One display case features such famous veterans as Ira Hayes, recent Medal of Honor recipient Father Emil Kapaun, actress Beatrice Arthur, and jazz musician John Coltrane.
The display also offers a glimpse into the records and the meticulous work of St. Louis’ Preservation Programs. The second case features scenes from the Preservation Lab showing work to preserve Official Military Personnel Files impacted by the 1973 fire.
Note: the airport charges parking fees to all visitors.
