The Annual Musical Interlude

Our staff here at the Richardson-Sloane Special Collections Center celebrate the winter holidays each year by mailing cards to our wonderful volunteers, exchanging small gifts, enjoying enough chocolate to put the Hershey corporation firmly in the black for the year, and, in one unfortunate case, writing new lyrics to an old holiday song.

Here is this season’s effort, which provides a short (and woefully inadequate) introduction to our awesome (if we do say so) Special Collections Staff.*

 Happy Holidays!

Patrons, They are Coming Nigh

Patrons, they are coming nigh
Asking help from SC staff–
Please find their families, or try
To seek obit and epitaph.

Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try . . .
Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try, too.

Amy is our leader here—
For hard work she wins the prize.
Pat tames Gov Docs without fear
And Karen keeps us organized.

Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try . .
Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try, too.

Archive Queen is Amy D.
Cristina came here from afar.
Sarah writes up every fee.
And Fred, he is a movie star.**

Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try . .
Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try, too.

So for answers, come this way!
Our resources are sure to please.
But you should visit anyway–
Because we have the coolest frieze.

Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try . .
Gee-eeeee-eeeee-ee-enea-logy!
And some local his’try, too.

*And which can’t hope to come close to the sheer chutzpah that was last year’s attempt.

**Fred is a handsome pelican from the Isabel Bloom company (Ms. Bloom was a local artist of some note).  He technically belongs to Pat, but has been adopted as the department mascot.
