Philadelphia Studies is curated by Michael Krasulski. Michael is a librarian and professor at the Community College of Philadelphia and a congregant at Church of St. Luke and The Epiphany. He is visiting the various parishes in Philadelphia documenting their hidden archival collections and sharing them with the world as well as sharing materials from his own collections (with the requisite permissions, of course!). Special focus is paid to the “dialogue of decline” in the Episcopal Church prior to the ordination of women priests in 1974. More about the project can be found here.
Why the name? Well because Michael jokingly calls his book collection “The Library of the Philadelphia Studies Association.”
