Going to the Archives Library (remembrance)

When I look back upon the day we went to the Archives. I remember that I had enjoyed the class trip to the Special Archive Collection. My favorite part that I heard about while I was there was the manual that was printed for the restrictions of the woman student during the 40s to 60s that went to University of Southern Mississippi. I could not believe the restrictions that the committee had put on the woman student body. I know that in this time and age woman can get away with almost anything and that we have little restrictions by society in how we dress.
My absolute favorite is the many collections we saw in the archived library is the many varieties of the Cinderella story. Cinderella was my favorite children's book when I was a child. I had other books that I liked but this was my absolute favorite. The other things that I saw that were interesting were the political cartoons, photos, and books that were written on the backs of wall paper plus the ones that were panted with designs. I hope to visit the Archives Library in the future to help do research for a paper.
