HLS Student Organizations Exhibited

[We have the following announcement of an exhibit of Historical and Special Collections at the Harvard Law School Library.]

Spicy Reforms and Crystallizing Clap Trap: Student Organizations at Harvard Law School

What do dining halls, women’s showers at Hemenway Gymnasium, and shared course outlines have in common? These are all resources available at Harvard Law School today that were put into place by students of yesterday. HLS’s Historical & Special Collections’ new exhibit takes a look at how students and their ever-increasing number of law clubs, social clubs, and affinity groups have contributed to HLS culture over time. Following an archival collecting project undertaken by HSC in 2016-2018, the exhibit also addresses how archivists here at HLS and abroad are coordinating efforts to preserve today’s student histories. Curated by HSC staff Jessica Farrell and Jane Kelly, it will be on view in the Caspersen Room through January 2019 with online addenda [here] . Please stop by and visit if you are in the area!
