Development events

Members of the Society of Collectors and special guests are invited for drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a talk by Professor Alison Cornish, Professor of Italian, University of Michigan, and Adam Strohm, Digital Collections Librarian at the Newberry. Guests will view items recently added to the Newberry’s collection through gifts from the Society of Collectors and learn about some of the scholarship and projects they have inspired. Professor Cornish will show how a 15th-century manuscript provides insight into the lives of semi-educated urban Italians, and Mr. Strohm will share a Civil War soldier’s letters and an update on the Newberry’s online transcription project.

This event is by invitation only. To learn more about the Society of Collectors, contact Sarah Alger at (312) 255-3544 or via email at
