The Past Personified: a Presidential History of Drexel University
Reception Wednesday September 23rd from 4 to 6 p.m

This exhibition, curated by Shaun Kirpatrick, illustrates the University's past leaders with images and documents from the Drexel Archives’ collections.
Archives often have backlogs of materials that have not been fully classified, described or indexed; these collections are called "hidden" because they are difficult or impossible for researchers to use.
