Well kind reader, it is time for this Archivist to pack some bags and hit the road…to Richmond! Thanks to my amazing employer, Old Dominion Special Collections & University Archives and the generosity of the Allan Blank Fund, I get go on a research expedition.

The goal of my foray is to dive further into the life of Allan Blank, meet with individuals that knew the composer and record my journey along the way. Over the course of two days, I will visit the Virginia Commonwealth University campus and the Virginia Holocaust Museum, along with a few interesting spots in between.

While on the road, I will post multiple articles chronicling the events of the day.


Until we meet again kind reader, wish me well!
