New Acquisitions Exhibit, April-May 2014

See the latest additions to the holdings of the Oberlin College Archives in our current exhibit. My personal favorite of these is the rubbing from a Chinese monument at the Beilin Museum at Xi'an, China, purchased by the late Paul Arnold, former Professor of Art at Oberlin. Other objects on display include a bamboo cane, letter sweaters, an 1856 handbill advertising a sale of land and slaves in Kentucky, an album of early postcards of Oberlin, etchings of Oberlin buildings by Julia Gridley Severance, and a scrapbook made by a 1943 Oberlin College graduate.

This exhibit will be on view in April and May of 2014 in the Goodrich Room, 420 Mudd.
