Jane Austen Collection Open House
Curious about Goucher’s world-famous Jane Austen Collection, which began with a bequest from alumna Alberta H. Burke, class of 1928? Want to share some pictures with Austen fans among your family and friends? Drop in and see treasures including original English editions from the 1810s, American editions from the 1830s, translations, and Alberta Burke’s amazing scrapbooks. On hand to offer introductions and answer questions will be Juliette Wells, Goucher’s Austen specialist; Grace Fischbach ’22, who recently completed an independent study in the Austen Collection; and staff from Special Collections & Archives. All members of the Goucher community are invited!
