Hands on Hamilton History will debut on Thursday, Sept. 22, with an exhibit related to Samuel Kirkland. Each month, Hands on Hamilton History will feature a small group of documents, artifacts and visual materials relating to a specific period in the history of the College. A brief discussion of these materials will take place at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month in the Patricia Pogue Couper Research Room in the Emerson Rare Book Room, third floor of Burke Library.
Visitors will be allowed to get up close to the artifacts and even handle some of them. The next day the items will be installed in the display cases on the first floor of Burke Library.
