Exhibition curated by Paula Lee.

As a columnist for The New Yorker and other publications, Will Cuppy (Ph.B. '07, A.M. '14) satirized evolutionary theory and commented on the ironies of human history. The exhibition, organized by Paula Lee and drawn from the Cuppy papers and other materials from the University Archives, traced Cuppy's years at the University and as the author of a series of popular classics including The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody.
