History in Your Hands: Emily Dickinson Letter
Every archival collection holds a story. Manuscripts and artifacts bear witness to past events, but only a careful researcher can piece together the facts of history and reveal the narrative within the collection.
VCU Libraries Special Collections and Archives houses many fascinating primary source materials that wait for inquisitive minds to study them. This exhibit presents featured manuscript collections that we believe merit further research. Only when you take "history in your hands" can you begin the process that will allow the full story to be shared.
