Overview

In his bequest to Johns Hopkins University, John Work Garrett described his library as “a memorial to my family,” recalling the ubiquity of books, and the love of book collecting, that had shaped two generations of the Garrett family at Evergreen. Join rare book curator Earle Havens, Ph.D., for an illustrated talk that will highlight his new and extensive research on the John Work Garrett Library—one of the truly great private rare book and manuscripts collections of late 19th- and early 20th-century America.
