Tis the season for holiday cards! In Acumen, we have some digitized holiday cards dating back to the early 1900s. The cards included here were found in the William Crawford Gorgas Papers, the Manley Family Papers, the Tuscaloosa Service Men’s Center Scrapbook and the O. E. Bruce, Jr., Letters.  Click on the images to link to the original item in Acumen.
