Gulick Makes History

As Keepers of the Luther Gulick Flame, we’re always happy when students and scholars visit the Archives to tap the riches of the IPA Collection and Gulick Papers. (Once we finish our digitization project, much of the material will be available on line.) So we were delighted recently to host Prof. Vincent Di Girolamo’s history class on the Great Depression.
