August 4, 2017 Abilene Christian University Special Collections staff participated in the US National Archive’s Twitter Hashtag Party. The featured hashtag for the party was #ArchivesSquadGoals. We brought to the party this 1953 photograph of the “Ping pong champs” at Ibaraki Christian College and queried if anyone was up for a match:

The US National Archives quickly put the ball back in our court with this tweet:
