Wondering what made these StFX library staff members so happy? Read on for this week’s Digital Collections Throwback Thursday selection.
Back in the late 1990s this group of lucky library employees won the Lotto 6/49, for a grand total of $633,606.80 just in time for Christmas. In case you were wondering, that is the equivalent of almost 1 million dollars today!
For more information on these lottery winners, see the StFX Library’s News@StFX collection. This collection contains digitized newsletters that were published semimonthly by the University’s, Communications and Marketing Office. Digitized editions included in the collection cover over 17 years, from January 1998 to November 2015, and can be viewed online at no charge. Search for and within each record by using the search bar on the top right of the screen, or the search bar on the left, under “Search StFX Digital Collections.”
