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

It must be something to watch yourself being turned into a sculpture! In this photo, Joan Dell creates a clay model of Congressman “Bob” Poage in honor of his dedicated service to the people. The metal sculpture is on permanent display in the W. R. Poage Reading Room. #PoageLibrary #BCPM #Archives #sculptures #Congress

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

The attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, left a deep impression on the American public, and both Congressman Bob Poage and Congressman Marvin Leath focused on the importance of the event in their oral histories. Poage had been concerned about the possibility of war. He began hearing basic details of the attack on the radio that night, but while “there was a great deal of talk,… nobody had much information” until the following morning. Leath was ten years old at the time; when his mother—looking “like somebody had just shot her”—told him the news, he “absolutely thought the world was coming to an end.” #PearlHarbor #PearlHarborDay #December7 #WRPoage #MarvinLeath #PoageLibrary #OralHistory #BCPM

We’ve got some pretty cool #ArchivesCrafty items! These wood chip presidential portrait mosaics were created by James B. Mason. We have all of the presidents up until Richard Nixon. Can you guess who these are? #ArchivesHashtagParty #WhoDatPresident #PoageLibrary #BCPM

Remember when traveling over the holidays to always follow the house rules. Congressman Poage was a master of this philosophy, and it shows in this photo. Before entering a Tibetan temple he removed his hat and shoes and placed them carefully outside. #BCPM #PoageLibrary #WorldTraveler #Respect

Did you know we have the #TravelDiaries of Congressman Poage? They tell us that #OTD in 1965, 52 years ago, Poage was in Egypt after traveling to Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, Greece, and Turkey. After several days in Egypt, he went on to a Food and Agriculture Conference in Rome. Like this page, much of his diary discusses the people, agriculture, and landscape. #MondayMemories #WRPoage #Agriculture #PoageLibrary

After Copenhagen, Ed Nichols was assigned south to sunny Madrid, serving as the U.S. Agricultural Counselor in Spain two times: 1985-1989, and 1992-1993. In Madrid, Nichols had the special opportunity to meet King Juan Carlos I several times with his diplomatic work. Those photos, as well as a few others from Spain, are shown here. #EdNichols #Madrid #Spain #USDepartmentofAgriculture #USDA #ForeignAgriculturalService #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

Happy #WorkspaceWednesday! Our student assistant Hannah is helping us to process a small section of state senate papers by topic. She’s a senior this year, and we will definitely miss her and the diligent work she does! #Archives #NationalArchivesMonth #WRPoage #PoageLibrary #BCPM

After his service in sunny Rome, Ed Nichols and his family moved north to Copenhagen to be the U.S. Agricultural Counselor to Denmark and Norway. While based in Copenhagen, his schedule required him to visit Oslo, Norway once a month since he represented both countries. Nichols also had the opportunity to visit Lapland in northern Scandinavia. Here are some memories from Ed Nichols in Denmark and Norway! #TravelTuesday #EdNichols #Copenhagen #Denmark #USDepartmentofAgriculture #USDA #ForeignAgriculturalService #Archives #PoageLibrary #BCPM

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
