There are three new special collections exhibits up on campus for you to check out this semester:
Burlington’s Poets Mimeo Cooperative, Perry Hall:
An exhibit about Burlington’s own Poets Mimeo Cooperative, founded in 1972, is on display in the historic conference rooms at Perry Hall. The exhibit features selections of the group’s self-published, mimeographed publications from Champlain’s Llewellyn Collection of Vermont History, the Fletcher Free Library, and members’ private collections. Highlighted are several poems referencing local landmarks, along with images and descriptions of the landmarks. This exhibit will be on display through March 2014.
Burlington Landmarks, Perry Hall:
The postcard alcove (between the historic library and lounge areas) features postcards from Champlain’s Llewellyn Collection of Vermont History depicting some of Burlington’s architectural landmarks, including City Hall, the Fletcher Free Library, Memorial Auditorium, and Edmunds School, along with brief histories of the buildings. This exhibit will be on display through March 2014.
Champlain’s Early Years, Miller Information Commons:
We’ve come a long way, baby! The display case in the lobby of MIC features memorabilia from the College Archives about Champlain’s early years as a business school in downtown Burlington. During these years, the school offered instruction in accounting, business correspondence, commercial law, penmanship, typing, and shorthand, among other subjects. This exhibit will be on display through May 2014.
