|t its March meeting,
the NMJHS Board of Directors unanimously voted to formally donate
its archival collection to the New Mexico Records Center and
Archives in Santa Fe. The papers had been on loan to the State
Archives by means of a series of temporary loan agreements for
over a decade.
Initiated in 1986, the collection consists of private papers
relating to nineteenth-century Jewish pioneers, as well as later
immigrants to New Mexico, photographs, videos, and the official
papers of the Society. Books dealing with histori
||cal topics will be donated to the Southwest
Room of the New Mexico State Library, while all other books will
go to the Fray Angelico Chávez History Library of the
Museum of New Mexico.
The formal presentation of the archival collection will
take place at the NMJHS Archives Reception, Thursday May 2, from

something that has been hidden for years.
