The monthly series of bicentennial displays, Hands on Hamilton History, continues on Thursday, Nov. 17. This month’s exhibit collects documents regarding the founding of Hamilton College. On display will be documents and artifacts dating from 1812 and throughout the 1800s. Some of the earliest illustrated views of the College will be on view, as well as the original engraving blocks from which they were printed.
The items will be on display in the Patricia Pogue Couper Research Room in the Emerson Rare Book Room on the third floor of Burke Library on Thursday, Nov. 17. At 10 a.m. at 2 p.m., brief discussions of the items will be held and visitors will be able to get close to the artifacts and even handle some of them. On Friday, the items will be moved to the display cases on the library’s first floor.
