History of the Allentown Band


Muhlenberg Archive Project

The Allentown Band and Muhlenberg College, longtime Lehigh Valley institutions and long-term community friends, have embarked on a collaboration to preserve the Band’s archives, gather members’ oral histories, and develop and share digital stories about the Band’s work. The partners include members of the Band, students, and faculty in an integrative learning course involving archival science and documentary fieldwork. This site highlights the digital scholarship of students’ oral histories, digital stories, and finding aids that speak to the traditions and treasured memories of the Band.

This is an on-going project: View the Archive Project Here
