Secretary Henry - Castle Stories

0 Favorites 0 Copies
Social Studies +1 Age Level N/A

In honor of our 14th Secretary, Lonnie G. Bunch, we are exploring the relationship of Secretary Henry and the Smithsonian Castle Building in this collection. He was not an advocate of building at all, so these images explore his life and research in the building he tried so hard to not build. My favorite resources for this collection are found at the Smithsonian Archives blog: https://siarchives.si.edu/history/joseph-henry and https://siarchives.si.edu/history/featured-topics/henry/joseph-henrys-life
