About This Exhibit

"Poetic Associations: The English Poetry Collection of Dr. Gerald Wachs" was curated by Eric Powell, Alice Schreyer, Catherine Uecker, and Sarah Wenzel. Our work was substantially shaped by Stephen Weissman , whose detailed descriptions, prepared over the course of many years, guided our selections and helped us understand the special "association" of each item with the nineteenth-century English poetry collection of Dr. Gerald N. Wachs.

This web exhibit was produced by Joe Scott with the assistance of Spencer Kaplan. Graphic design and technical support provided by Kathelijne Zadrozny. Photography by Michael Kenny.

With generous support from the Wachs family, the book Poetic Associations: The Nineteenth-century English Poetry Collection of Dr. Gerald N. Wachs is available through the Special Collections Research Center. Please contact SCRC to request a copy of the book.
