Nowadays, we have opinion polls on everything from presidential candidates to Lady Gaga’s wild attire. Not wanting to miss the poll train, we’re offering you a chance to sound off on some of our State Archives’ many interesting documents, collections, photos and other historical nuggets.
Starting this month, we’re featuring various “Archives treasures.” Over the past week, we’ve showcased three of these treasures for viewing. The first “contestant” is the state boxing license applications submitted by heavyweight legends Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. The second is one of the photos showing the construction of the Legislative Building. And the third is the territorial seal created in the 1850s.
Now it’s up to you. Please vote for your Archives treasure below. We’ll leave our poll open until 3 p.m. this Friday and then we’ll announce the winner later that afternoon, assuming we don’t have another power outage like last week!
