About the Exhibit

The MU Libraries are fortunate to hold materials of great cultural and historical importance. This online exhibit makes one of these materials into a resource that can be studied and enjoyed by students and scholars throughout the world.

This exhibit was curated by Kelli Hansen, Print Collections Manager, with editorial and curatorial support from Michael Holland, Interim Head of Special Collections. The manuscript was photographed by Kurt Kopp at the Library Systems Office. High-quality digital images are available to interested researchers; please contact Special Collections for more information. Other photographs are available in the public domain or were taken by Kelli Hansen in the Special Collections division. This website was constructed in February 2005 by Kelli Hansen using Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 and Adobe Photoshop CS.
