***CANCELLED**** Albany Archives: The Full Story

***CANCELLED**** Albany Archives: The Full Story

****CANCELLED***** We are sorry but on 12./19/18 the speaker contacted us indicating he had to cancel tonight's event. Since the topics are holiday themed, it is unlikely the presentation will be rescheduled. **********  

Join Matt Malette (@albanyarchives) as he shares the full story behind his popular Spectrum News local history segments. This month learn more about the history of the first Christmas card printed in the United States, which was printed right here in Albany! Matt will also talk about Troy's early connection to the poem "Twas the Night Before Christmas" and how it inspired an 1830s Troy newspaper to create and illustration of Santa Claus, perhaps the first representation of the Santa we recognize today!
