At the north end of the reference collection, humbly housed in beige cabinets, rest thousands of postcards. These penny postcard images, sent as modern novelties, carry messages of well being and adventure. In this series we follow our intrepid traveler from city to city on a world tour.
Edward J. Olszewski retired in 2010 after a thirty-nine year career teaching in the CMA/CWRU Joint Program in Art History & Museum Studies. In honor of his retirement, a festschrift was written by a group of his former doctoral students whose careers were inspired by his guidance and mentoring.
The Ingalls Library contains a vast hidden collection of personal bookplates, uncataloged and unknown. These ex libris reside in the books in the library stacks, evidence of the remarkable provenance of the collection, waiting to be discovered by the curious patron.
