The Life of a Spanish Document by Alfred Lemmon
The Threads of Memory Lecture Series
For a fragile piece of paper to survive four centuries, it first had to survive harsh frontier conditions. Dr. Alfred E. Lemmon, director of the Williams Research Center at the Historic New Orleans Collection, explores the details of that that journey in “Following the Paper Trail: The Daily Life of a Spanish Colonial Document,” part of the Threads of Memory Lecture Series, at 2 pm, Sunday, Oct. 24, in the History Museum Auditorium. The lecture is free with museum admission. Sundays are free to NM residents; children 16 and under are always free.
