Exhibition of Objects, Expected and Unexpected
June 4 – September 14, 2007
Archives and Special
Collections Lobby, Lower Level, Dwight Hall
From Mary Lyon's eye glasses to a
lock of her hair, her butter dish, a medical bag that Virginia
her at all times
to treat emergencies, dishes that students in archaeology classes excavated
from the site of Mount Holyoke's original Seminary Building in 1997-1998,
and Tiffany jewelry, objects are an interesting addition to the papers,
records and publications collected by Archives and Special Collections.
These and other objects are currently on display in the Archives and
Special Collections Lobby in Dwight Hall.
