About this Exhibit

This Web exhibit was planned in conjunction with the Darwin/Chicago 2009 conference held at the University of Chicago, October 29-31, 2009 and complements the exhibit Chicago Celebrates Darwin held at the John Crerar Library, October 19, 2009-March 26, 2010.

The present Web exhibit and the John Crerar Library exhibits draw heavily on the Darwin Centennial Celebration Records, which are held in the Special Collections Research Center. The collection contains correspondence, invitations, biographical material on celebration participants, publicity, press releases, clippings, photographs, and sound recordings of panel discussions and Centennial proceedings. This Web exhibit was curated by David Pavelich, Reference and Instruction Librarian, Special Collections and was produced by Kerri Sancomb, Special Collections Exhibit Specialist.
