Due to inclement weather, the National Archives at Philadelphia will be closed on March 21, 2018. Given the forecast, please check our page or www.archives.gov/philadelphia on Wednesday evening or Thursday morning for updates on when our building will reopen. The photograph shared here is from a snow storm that took place on January 20, 1934. Although it was taken 84 years ago in Medford, NJ, this image appears to be quite a familiar scene! Citation: Snow Storm in Medford, NJ; Box 2; Northeastern Forest, Timber Management; RG 095 – Records of the United States Forest Service; National Archives at Philadelphia (NAID: 28208828) and (HMS ID: PH-3926).

    Our Highway Unit is the primary response team during snow and ice events. One of the major challenges the unit incurs is snow being shoveled back into plowed streets after city teams clear the street. This practice is not only illegal, it's a hazard to drivers and pedestrians.

Teacher as Hero Awards Draw Outstanding Pool of Nominees

The 2018 Teacher as Hero Award nominations have come to a close, and we want to thank everyone who sent in a submission. We received over 60 nominations this year from across the Greater Philadelphia Region and even as far away as California! The stories we learned about these teachers are both inspiring and heartwarming. This year’s 11 finalists exemplify educators who are going above and beyond in their classrooms, schools, and communities. Their stories cover a broad spectrum of achievements including ESL teachers breaking down barriers for their students and families; photography and cinematography educators utilizing those mediums to encourage their students to be better citizens; and even a math teacher who has been the driving force in creating a school wide atmosphere of giving back to the community.
