On May 8th, Val-Kill welcomed three Bard students to present their new online exhibits developed from archival, print, and digital online resources. Each showcased their own close, refined and innovative research on Eleanor Roosevelt, based on personal fields of interest and drawn from their practicum at Bard College. The practicum was entitled "We Make Our Own History," inspired by Eleanor's own words and reverence for paying a good deal of attention to the past and the future, and their relations. It was organized, taught and advised by Public Historian in Residence, Cynthia Koch.
