The Benedictine University Library will celebrate American Archives Month this October with a series of events featuring the history of the University and the surrounding area. Archives Month events begin Wednesday October 19th at 5:00 p.m. in the Coal Ben with a presentation on the haunted history of the University and the Chicago area by guest speaker Ursula Bielski, founder of Chicago Hauntings, Inc. and a Benedictine alumna. Following the event, the University Archives and Special Collections in the University Library will offer a short tour featuring selected artifacts and rare books. Also opening on October 19th is a new exhibit in the library featuring the history of Benedictine’s campus buildings, including an exploration of their haunted pasts. Half hour mini-tours of the archives will also be offered every Wednesday at noon and 5pm through Thanksgiving. These events are free and open to the public.
