In the spring of 2014, the library was contacted about a cartload worth of boxes containing silverware, porcelain and other household items believed to have belonged to the founder of Skidmore College, Lucy Skidmore Scribner.

The items were transferred to the Special Collections department and put under the care of staff member Jane Kjaer, who carefully researched and cataloged each item.  This exhibit is a result of Kjaer’s research and curating work and showcases a sample of Mrs. Scribner’s items with a brief discussion of Victorian dining customs.

Exhibit curated by Jane Kjaer, Public Access Assistant

The exhibit will be on display in the Harris Lobby in the Scribner Library through the end of August.
