1. To mark the news that the Senate has approved comprehensive immigration reform, BuzzFeed has published a series of stunning photographs from our Manuscripts and Archives Division showing immigrants who arrived at Ellis Island in the early 1900s. The images were taken by Ellis Island clerk Augustus Sherman, and are definitely worth checking out. Our whole digitized collection of Sherman photographs can be found here
