In the pursuit of scholarship, we must occasionally circumnavigate monolithic obstacles impeding our path. In this case, the stairwell in the Poage Legislative Library. #baylor #bayloruniversity #mybaylor

On this #wanderingwednesday, we happened upon one of the many treasures at the #PoageLibrary. This is Bob Poage's congressional desk, purchased for him by his staff after he retired from Congress. A great piece of history at the Poage! #WRPoage #Congress

You'll never know what you'll find when you wander around #PoageLibrary! For this #wanderingwednesday, we found an old-fashioned stereoscope in the Jack E. Hightower Book Vault. Popular in the early 20th century, a stereoscope provides two views of the same image, making the picture appear three-dimensional. #stereoscope #oldstuff #vintage

Another #StudentSpotlight! Samantha says “Working at the Poage has been an awesome experience for me. I love being able to participate in the archival process and learning about all of the hard work and passion Texans have put into improving our state. I also appreciate the events the Poage has to offer and the friendly staff!” #PoageLibrary #BCPM #Archives

Between 1979-1982, Ed Nichols served as the U.S. Agricultural Counselor to Italy. Based in Rome, he engaged in successful deliberations with the Italian Minister of Agriculture. The Italian President decorated him in 1982 as Commendatore, a high Italian honorific title, for his success in advancing U.S.-Italian trade relations. Enjoy some mementos from Nichols’ time in Italy! #TravelTuesday #EdNichols #Rome #Italy #USDepartmentofAgriculture #USDA #ForeignAgriculturalService #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

Former diplomat Ed Nichols worked for the USDA, 1977-1978, as Assistant to the Deputy Secretary. In this role, he was able to travel to China to assist in normalization of trade relations. He also had a little fun while in China: his friend, Tom Angott, recorded a 124 page document on the trip, and noted that Nichols was “very charmed with the different varieties of food, particularly…the sea moss” at a luncheon at the Imperial Palace. How perfect for #TravelTuesday! #EdNichols #China #USDepartmentofAgriculture #USDA #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

As many of us know, October is playoff time for America's favorite pastime: baseball! We seem to have plenty of #baseball in our collections at Poage (see last Friday’s post on #AlanSteelman and baseball). This jersey belonged to #BobBullock when he played for Hillsboro High School. #PoageLibrary #BCPM #BatterUp #TakeMeOutToTheBallgame

Take me out to the ball game! At Poage Library, we have the papers of former Representative Alan Steelman, including his baseball cards from the 1974 Congressional Baseball game. Steelman was a Republican from Texas, serving the TX 5th District, 1973-1977. #ArchivesHashtagParty #ArchivesGameNight #AlanSteelman #Baseball #PoageLibrary #BCPM

There is an interesting story behind the constituent card chosen for the Congressional Collection collage on the #PoageLibrary homepage. Our archivist @mary_goolsby explained, “Although I married into the family after Mr. Hampel died, my mother-in-law remembers Mr. Poage coming to their house for dinner often. Her father was the manager of the McLennan County Electric Co-Operative and Mr. Poage was instrumental in helping him bring power to rural areas. It is an awesome family connection knowing my grandfather-in-law was great friends with Mr. Poage.”

During the month of October, we will spend some time highlighting the diplomatic papers of Ed Nichols and his various travel experiences. Between 1971-1977, Nichols was Assistant Commissioner of Agriculture for Texas and involved with the Japan-Texas Association Conference. As such, he was able to travel to Japan! Be sure to check out more posts on the Ed Nichols papers on Facebook this month @poagelibrary! #TravelTuesday #EdNichols #Japan #TexasDepartmentofAgriculture #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

Our collections are full of interesting items, like this automatic voting machine. The sample ballot insert on the machine is an unusual assortment composed of the 1940 Presidential candidates and various Pennsylvania politicians from non-concurrent races. #NationalVoterRegistrationDay #Voting #PoageLibrary #BCPM

You've heard about the keys to success, but what about the keys to the city? This key to Copperas Cove is just one of Chet Edwards six keys here at the Poage! #MuseumMonday #ChetEdwards #BCPM #PoageLibrary
