We're celebrating Independence Day. Did you know that the first person to sign the Declaration of Independence was not even a president? Many people think John Hancock was one of our US presidents, but he was president of the Continental Congress. Our state of Massachusetts was the first state to declare July 4th an official state holiday. Massachusetts has recognized July 4th as Independence Day since 1781, which was a few months before America won the Revolutionary War.

University of Lowell Hang Gliding Club Collection

The University of Lowell Hang Gliding Club was created by John Kelly Ph D. and faculty member Bill Blood in 1974. Our collection includes many photos, video tapes, posters, awards, and journals. The club lasted from 1974 until 1996 and won several intercollegiate awards. The Collection has been preserved online for future generations. Check out our archive of the club online! As you browse the old photos, do you recall friends or relatives who may have been a part of the hang-gliding club, or recognize any faculty members? Let us know! Many thanks to Bill Blood for making the collection available via UMass Lowell’s Center for Lowell History!
