Exhibition Goes on the Road
On January 16, the College unveiled its first traveling exhibition, The Literature of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, at the new Jefferson Library near Monticello, Virginia. Stephen Dow Beckham, Pamplin Professor of History, is the exhibition’s curator.
The exhibition features up to 60 items in 11 display cases and a number of framed wall pieces with items drawn from the College’s unmatched library of expedition-related literature acquired over the past 20 years.
The exhibition will complete a national tour before returning home to Oregon in 2006. It is currently on display at Philadelphia’s Academy of Natural Sciences through September 14.
