As an archivist, it is not surprising that it is the content of a document that I find most interesting and useful. However, growing up in the ‘80s, sticker and stationery swaps played a big role in my childhood. The more colorful and interesting the stationery, the better. As I grew up – and computers took over our communication – my active interest waned but I have always kept an eye out for interesting finds in the Archives. Over the past several years, I’ve noted the locations of these and have pulled together some of my favorites. While the messages and people may be notable, in this case it is much more about the story of the letterhead.
