Lowell History from International Institute

Arabic language class at International Institute of Lowell

Historians at UMass Lowell continue to mine the newly rediscovered archives of the International Institute of Lowell for stories and photographs that help tell the story of the organization and of the city of Lowell.  This photo shows at Arabic language class taught by Mrs. Victoria Estfam at the Institute.  Does anyone recognize any of the young women in this photo?

This ongoing historic research will be a focal point of the International Institute of Lowell’s American Dream Award Ceremony and Dinner which this year will honor Luis Pedroso, a former client of the International Institute.  This event will take place on Thursday, December 11 beginning at 530 pm at United Teen Equality Center at 34 Hurd Street in Lowell.  For more information about this event, go to the website of the International Institute of Lowell
