At the center of Martha Norkunas's narrative is her intimate connection to the city of Lowell, Massachusetts through her family's rich history. She looks for the interplay of the personal and public, singular and collective memory and history through Lowell's public spaces, always examining where her personal memory converges with the history of the city.
The Center for Lowell history is an archive of both the City of Lowell and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Librarian Martha Mayo has done an amazing job digitizing the collection. Every year more and more is available.
