DOCUMENTS COLLECTIONS

                                                 

The originals of these document collections belong to the City of Lowell, the University of Massachusetts Lowell, and the Lowell Historical Society. The originals are located at Lowell City Hall and the Center for Local History.

They were digitized using a Canon Rebel T3i DSLR camera at the O’Leary Library and currently at the Center for Lowell History.

The online collections were built by Mickyas Yihdego, Bailey Wong, and Brad MacGowan. The documents were archived and inventoried by Walter Hickey and Brad MacGowan.

Special thanks to Mehmed Ali and Janine Whitcomb for their efforts, ideas, and support.

This is a work in progress and documents will be added on a regular basis.
