In 1893 Clark University exhibited a number of materials from the university at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois. According to an article from the Worcester Daily Spy, “The exhibit of Clark University at the Columbian Exposition consisted chiefly of publications of 160 books, memoirs, theses, or articles by members of the university. These were bound uniformly in 25 volumes, while the walls of the alcove set apart for the university were covered with about 200 photographs of buildings, apparatus and processes." ~ Worcester Daily Spy, June 9, 1896.
Our intent is to upload newspaper articles, photographs and other materials relating to Clark's participation in the Columbian Exposition. This is an ongoing project, and as such, the materials from this collection will appear over time.
