The State Historical Society of Iowa is inviting state residents to submit materials that can help future generations understand the pandemic and its widespread impact across the state. The society is accepting digital submissions, such as photos, emails, videos and blogs, as well as suggestions of physical artifacts that could be donated at a later time, when the society’s facilities reopen to the public. The society is particularly interested in stories and materials that reflect the pandemic’s ripple effects on health care, education and labor. Iowans are encouraged to submit accounts about how the pandemic has affected their everyday lives, including social distancing, working from home, and shifting school and other activities to virtual formats. Submitters must be at least 18 years old and may submit only materials they have created themselves. More information is available online.
