    Over 200 people attended the opening reception, held at Swem Library, to honor the three women, Lynn Briley ‘71, Janet Brown Strafer ‘71 and Karen Ely ’71, who moved into Jefferson Hall in 1967.

  • This exhibition shows only a sampling of the travel books in Swem Library’s Special Collections at William & Mary. The works on display describe the world in words but also with maps and topographical views as well as pictures of plants, animals, and people; that convey in words and images the languages, history, and mores of the places visited in the early modern period.
