"Henry Folger and Amherst College"
Hear an address by Stephen H. Grant, author of "Collecting Shakespeare: The Story of Henry and Emily Folger." Drawing heavily on Frost Library’s photo collection, the author will trace the academic career of Henry Clay Folger (Class of 1879), discuss his five decades with the Standard Oil Co., explore his relations with the college and chart his creation of the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
This event is occurring in conjunction with the annual spring meeting of the Friends of the Amherst College Library. A reception will follow.
The Alfred Friendly '33 Periodicals Reading Room is on the Main Level of Frost Library.
