  • Seidman House


Founder of Paper of the Past, Mandy Ross, will explain the motivation behind her large vintage scrapbook collection and why she shares long-lost memories via social media, connecting with thousands of people each day. 

She will also discuss the mysterious 80-year-old scrapbook of 40 letters that brought her halfway around the world, and later to the doorstep of the Grand Valley State University Special Collections and University Archives. 

Seidman House is located across from (East of) Lake Superior Hall.
