  • Whether things disappeared due to rivalry, thievery, or more mysterious reasons, someone cared enough to return them to the college, and many once lost treasures now make their home in Swem Library’s Special Collections Research Center.
  • Although there were isolated incidents of arrests and bad feelings, the occupation of the Historic Triangle was neither cruel nor oppressive.

  • During the 1888-1889 academic year, William & Mary president Lyon G. Tyler taught the College’s first psychology course, which was then listed under the Department of Moral Science, Political Economy, and Civil Government. Today, there are approximately 30 faculty members, including visiting and adjunct professors, who teach more than 50 course sections and numerous labs. The publications selected for this exhibit show the varied research conducted by the department’s faculty.
