New exhibit: Trips, tours, and voyages

Tuesday, June 7, 2016

If you have not made any summer travel plans, you should visit the Doris Lewis Rare Book Room and travel around the world alongside some early adventurers! Special Collections & Archives is pleased to announce the launch of a new travel exhibit, "Trips, tours, and voyages".

We’re highlighting trip diaries, scrapbooks, early postcards, images, and published chronicles from our archival collections and rare books. Of special note is film footage from the 1936 Berlin Olympics taken by Norman C. Schneider of Kitchener, who reported on the Olympics for the Kitchener-Waterloo Record. This exhibit runs until the end of August.
