The Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections currently has two concurrent exhibits on display.  ‘Letters to Luminaries’ features notable, signed letters and other correspondence from the Center’s collections.  Famous people from all walks of life: writers, scientists, activists, politicians, and noted Toledoans of all stripes are represented in the display, as well as letters from common people in extraordinary circumstances.    Just outside the main exhibit area on the fifth floor of Carlson Library, the gallery features enlarged signed photographs and articles featuring some of the many celebrities and entertainers that have appeared on campus throughout the years.  Both exhibits will run through July 31st, 2014.  The UTNews did a great article with more information about the exhibits that we encourage you to read.  For more information, contact Barbara Floyd, Director of the Canaday Center, at barbara.floyd@utoledo.edu or 419-530-4480.
