Georgia Archives Month is an opportunity to recognize Georgia’s rich history and to highlight the many ways historical records enrich our lives. Join us as we celebrate Special Collections at Georgia Southern University Libraries as a caretaker of historical records and memory on campus.
Secrets, Sources, & Swamp is a physical adventure game in which participants must work together to examine historical evidence and solve puzzles in order to complete the objective and "escape" the room. This year's game will be themed around the Francis Harper materials housed in Zach S. Henderson Library Special Collections. Harper was a Cornell-trained naturalist who studied plant life and culture of the Okefenokee Swamp from 1912-1951. The game will explore aspects of Georgia folk culture, biodiversity, and the establishment of the Okefenokee National Wildlife refuge.
