Collecting American Histories: The Tracy W. McGregor Library at 75
Tuesday, April 8, 2014
The University of Virginia Library’s Tracy W. McGregor Library of American History turns 75 this year. One of the world’s great collections of rare books, maps, manuscripts, and prints concerning the discovery and exploration of the New World, and the history of North America to 1900, the McGregor Library also contains landmarks of English literature, and some surprises! Curator David Whitesell will offer a guided tour of “Collecting American Histories: The Tracy W. McGregor Library at 75,” an exhibition tracing the library’s origins and development at UVA and showing highlights from its wide-ranging holdings. (For a preview, see: http://explore.lib.virginia.edu/exhibits/show/mcgregor75)
The talk is free and open to the public.
