Where Did the Birds Go?

For many years, Ellis Library housed a collection of Dorothy Doughty porcelain birds that were donated to MU. According to the stipulations of the donor agreement, the University Libraries are now free to sell the birds. The collection has been sent to Link Auction Galleries in St. Louis to be included in the next live auction. The proceeds will benefit the University Libraries. The display cases where the birds were previously displayed is in the process of being refurbished as exhibit space to highlight University Libraries Special Collections materials.

For more information about the live auction, please visit www.linkauctiongalleries.com. The collection will be included in Sale#1079, the March Gallery Auction, at Link Auction Galleries, 5000 Washington Place, St. Louis, MO 63108, on March 17, 2018 beginning at 10:00am.
