Devotion and Inspiration: Beinecke People

Founded in 1963, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library is recognized worldwide for its exceptionally deep and broad research collections in multiple formats. But without the efforts of a dedicated cadre of staff, supporters, and researchers, the Beinecke could not fulfill its mission to "support intellectual communities at Yale and beyond"; indeed, if not for its donors, the Beinecke as such would not even exist. This exhibition provides a brief overview of some of these people and their efforts, which for half a century have helped to make the Beinecke a premiere resource for scholarship, teaching, and many other activities that inspire our curiosity and broaden our intellectual horizons.
