2015 marks the 25th year that Dr. Tom Nesmith has been teaching Archival Studies at the University of Manitoba! In honour of Tom, the Archival Student Chapter hosted a surprise ‘Tom Appreciation Night’ on the 22nd of April to celebrate. Tom’s students of the past 25 years –as well as other friends, colleagues, and members of the archival community– were invited to attend to join in the celebration, or to send regards or ‘punny’ memories of Tom to be included in a commemorative scrapbook. The evening was a success and was appreciated by our much admired professor.
A video of Tom’s speech, as well as photos from the evening, can be found below.
