Henry Folger and Amherst College
Please join us Friday, April 25, at 4:30 p.m. in Frost Library's Friendly Reading Room for a talk 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.
