Early in 2022, the University Archives was contacted by the Department of Economics regarding a recently unearthed trove of historical documents which had been tucked away in a storage closet for many decades. University Archivist Josh Schneider and Assistant University Archivist Hanna Ahn went to investigate, and were ecstatic to find that the files and notebooks inside those dusty boxes were indeed related to the early history of the department!
