Fall Exhibits Open At Moody Library

Sept. 5, 2002

Materials related to Texas political campaigns, the Armstrong Browning Library and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks are on display in Baylor University's Moody Memorial Library. The exhibits will run through Sept. 27.

Texas Political Campaigns, a sampling of campaign materials donated to the Baylor Collections of Political Materials by Ben Guttery of Fort Worth, is on display in two cases in the Allbritton Foyer. Items exhibited include business cards, matchbooks, nail files, thimbles and gum used by politicians running for state office during the 1900s.

Also in the foyer is an exhibit titled "One of Baylor's Best-Kept Secrets: Armstrong Browning Library." The display will include books, photographs and other materials from the library, which houses the largest collection of materials related to Victorian poets Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The exhibit also will highlight the Baylor libraries' 100th anniversary, which is being observed this academic year.

Two cases in the Moody Library concourse feature materials related to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Taken from the Baylor Collection of Political Materials, the exhibit includes newspapers, magazines and books about the event.

The exhibits can be viewed during library hours. For more information, contact Nancy Pederson at 710-6675.
