106: The Archivery de Lafayette

A lot of history about the Marquis de Lafayette here, a lot, because our guest, Director for Special Collections & College Archives Diane Shaw, knows more about the Marquis than any of us. He had 7 or 8 first names. Did you know that? He was America’s most famous visitor for a good century. We have his sword in the College collection. It’s a big deal. There’s racial history too, about the College, and other tidbits along the way. And there is, as ever, 10-20-30 music, a quiz, Friday/Sunday, and the like. Listeners can then follow us on twitter @somelaterdate, like us on Fb, rate us on iTunes, and subscribe. Thanks to Michelle, Ben G., Andie, and Claire for producing and interning. Additional thanks to Daniel Gonzalez for the new intro. Credit to Radiohead and Miles Davis.
