Creating and Conserving the Idaho Constitution

Creating and Conserving the Idaho Constitution In-Person

Join the Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS) and Idaho constitution expert and ISHS board of trustees member Ernie Hoidal, for the opening of Creating and Conserving the Constitution, an exhibit which explores the Idaho State Archives’ work in partnership with the Preservation Lab at the University of Utah’s J. Willard Marriott Library.

Hoidal, along with David Matte, State Archives Administrator, and Jennifer Spencer, ISHS Membership and Volunteer Coordinator, will discuss the multi-year conservation effort and the history of Idaho’s Constitutional Convention during the summer of 1889. Learn about the delegates from Alturas County (which includes present day Blaine County) who contributed and debated ideas to be drafted into the constitution and discover how you can access this vital piece of Idaho history and many others in your own home. 

After the presentation, join us for a reception in the Library's Foyer to enjoy some cookies around the exhibit, Creating and Conserving the Idaho Constitution, on display in the Library's Foyer from April 28 to June 25, 2022.
