How does an Iowa native and children's book author, Emilie Blackmore Stapp, relate to a boarding school for African American teenagers in the Piney Woods of Mississippi? What might timber industry documents and photographs tell us about Stapp? This collaborative exhibit from the McCain Library & Archives illustrates how our various collections complement each other and how they work together to tell a story.
The exhibit will be on display until March 10, 2010. The de Grummond Exhibit Room is on the second floor of Cook Library, and the hours are from 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. on Saturday, and 12:00-9:00 p.m. on Sunday.
