In May 2016, Amherst College hosted an exhibition of Shakespeare’s First Folio (1623) from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC. The current exhibition in Archives & Special Collections features rare books donated by Henry Clay Folger (AC 1879) and others; Emily Dickinson manuscripts in which she mentions Shakespeare; Shakespeare materials drawn from the Samuel French Collections; and a bit of the history of the Folger Shakespeare Library, which Henry Clay Folger left in his will to the Trustees of Amherst College.
Amherst College now holds one of the largest collections of published work by Native American authors anywhere in the country. A small sample of the more than 2,300 books in this collection is on display on the A-Level foyer, right outside of our Archives & Special Collections.
