This Date in History App for Android and Apple



I am proud to announce the release of the CUNY/New York Times in College This Date in History App developed by the LaGuardia and Wagner Archives for both Apple and Android platforms.   Using the milestones and photos from this year's and earlier calendars/websites, the Archives has created an app which delivers daily fascinating events in U.S. history for every day of the year.  I hope you'll download it and let us know what you think.

  2. Thank you so much for your comment. While the This Day in History App cannot be added to directly or downloaded as a fillable calendar, you can send a fun historical fact or special event that you would like us to consider adding to the app. Just send your ideas to sweinstein@lagcc.cuny.edu. The historical items on the app are mostly taken from our annual history calendars. You can view the online versions of several here: http://www.laguardiawagnerarchive.lagcc.cuny.edu/ShowCUNY_Curricula.aspx?CurrLink=http://cuny.edu/site/cc.html. Our 2016 Calendar, with the theme of Labor History, will be available shortly and will be viewable online by the end of January. Enjoy!
