Peirce Fellows Presentations: Spring 2010

Oz and Anne presentation

Oliver Cole '10 and Anne McLaughlin '10 have been researching a  collection of rare maps dating from the 17th century and creating an online exhibit of digitized images from the maps. Here they show the audience one of the maps from this mysterious map scrapbook. At right, Cassie Brand, Special Collections Project Associate, assists with the display.     

Maura Roth-Gormley

Maura Roth-Gormley's research explored a diverse collection of archival materials on co-education at Goucher College and she also conducted oral histories for a senior thesis paper. Maura presented her findings at a special Symposium session earlier in the day.

Lucie Ferguson '10, an art major, has analyzed the illustrations found in different editions of Mother Goose rhymes and used her observations to  create her own artistic renderings of the verses.

Here are some of Lucie's completed Mother Goose drawings:
