On the podcast Bill is joined by Dwight Miller, the senior archivist at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum when they collected the Laura Ingalls Wilder/ Rose Wilder Lane papers. Dwight gives a short version of how the papers came to the Library.

Bill will be speaking at the Library on Labor Day, September 5th with programs at 11am and 2pm.
