The creator of the Rothman Lantern Slide Collection (perhaps?)
For my inaugural post, I thought I’d highlight the person whom I think might be the creator/collector of the many charming and wonderful lantern slides housed within the TC archives. As you might know, the Rothman Lantern Slide Collection is accessible via Pocket Knowledge. I have enjoyed the images many of my colleagues have shared from this collection but have often wondered about who exactly Rothman was? Today, while searching in Pocket Knowledge I stumbled upon the Curriculum Vitae of Golda Rothman from 1965. It indicates that as a former student of TC, she would later become a Professor of Psychology at her alma mater. While we might never know the story behind the collection, it is nice to have a a bit of history to add to it (maybe).
