Expanding Understanding of What It Means to Be American
Featuring a conversation between Lowell High School students, Assistant Prof. Johanna Tigert, from the College of Education at UMass Lowell and Tsongas Industrial History Center Director, Sheila Kirschbaum.
This year students in Lowell High School's Seminar on American Diversity set out to explore their own personal histories and then to draw connections between their histories and the larger history of America.
And then they told their stories, many recorded online. They also published their stories in a book, We Are America.

O'Leary Library, Mezzanine
The Library of the Proprietors of Locks and Canals on the Merrimack, one of the oldest corporations in America, contains works used in the construction, maintenance, and improvement of the Lowell canal system and its mechanisms as well as several hydroelectric plants .
The collection is comprised of what would have been state of the art books and pamphlets, in English and French, dating from the 17th to the early 20th centuries. Many of the books are beautifully illustrated. Subject areas include architecture, astronomy, civil engineering, law mechanics, and physics.
It is miraculous that this library survived intact. The prospective uses of these antiquarian books are predominantly in the area of the history of engineering.
