Celebrate Dr. Sally K. Ride’s birthday and get excited for the 40th anniversary of her momentous space mission with our next AVMPI Presents program!
During this virtual lunchtime talk, we’ll hear from National Air and Space Museum Archivist Patti Williams and stream newly digitized audiovisual materials from the museum’s collections, digitized with support from the American Women’s History Initiative Pool fund. It’s going to be out of this world!
Patti Williams is the Acquisition Archivist, Digital Coordinator, and Deputy Chair for the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) Archives, Smithsonian Institution. She has been a member of the Archives Division since 1989 and during her almost 34-year tenure as Acquisition Archivist, she has brought in over 3,800 collections relating to aviation and space, one of which is the Sally K. Ride Papers.
We are committed to providing access services so all participants can fully engage in these events. Optional real-time captioning will be provided. If you need other access services, please email SLA-RSVP@si.edu. Advanced notice is appreciated. This program will also be recorded and made available following the event.
