In early April, museum curator Jerry Fabris visited Northeast Document Conservation Center in Andover, Massachusetts. His mission? To scan and digitize three of the earliest examples in history of recorded sound using the NEDCC's IRENE digital scanning system. Three "yellow paraffine"-type wax cylinder phonograph records, dating from circa 1888 or early 1889, accompanied Jerry on his visit. To learn more, visit the NEDCC blog for details on the visit!
