Events Highligh t

At the beginning of May, the American Historical Print Society's Annual Conference brought collectors, dealers, and colleagues from institutions such as the Library Company and the American Antiquarian Society to Ann Arbor. They visited the University's museums and libraries, listened to top scholars in the printing field, and spent a productive afternoon at the Clements Library viewing our magnificent materials.  Every corner of the Avenir Room was filled with a smorgasbord of printed items ranging from engravings to daguerreotypes. Displays of materials from all of our divisions highlighted the breadth of our holdings and amazed and delighted our guests.
