The Monroe County History Center, along with the IU Archives and the Monroe County Public Library, have been fielding phone calls and questions for weeks once it was announced that bound copies of the Herald-Times were going to be auctioned off instead of being taken in by a local repository. Dina Kellams, Director of the IU Archives, wrote about the challenges of accepting such a large donation on their website. We thought it would be good to share with our community as well and hope it clears up any questions anyone has.
