The Department of History at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg is holding its first-ever History Harvest, a one-day event for community members to bring and share letters, photographs, records, objects, and stories, and participate in a conversation with students majoring in History about the significance and meaning of their materials.

Selected artifacts will be viewed and processed at the History Harvest, where students will digitally catalogue objects and briefly interview owners as to their item’s backstory. No items will be taken or kept from the event, and no value appraisals will be available. Students will use the items and oral histories as the basis for a semester-long historical research project.
