Emily Dickinson’s Amherst College

Join museum staff for a lively lunchtime talk about the impact of Amherst College on the life of poet Emily Dickinson.

The Dickinson family were instrumental to the College during its first 75 years, beginning with Samuel Fowler Dickinson’s part in its founding and continuing with Edward and Austin’s combined 60 years of service as treasurers. The College was an early and lasting influence in Dickinson’s own life, playing an inestimable role in her early education and friendships, and later connecting her to an ever-widening local and global community. Through original photographs and archival documents, encounter some of the people and places that defined Dickinson’s 19th-century Amherst College, including students, professors, workers and alumni.

Following the talk, enjoy the Q&A with museum guides Stephanie Bennett, Brenna Macaray, Christopher Fobare and Anna Plummer.

All are welcome to attend this free program, but registration is required.
