February 2013 Archives

4:15 PM, Thurs. Feb. 28, Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd Library |

Jeffrey Groves, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dean of the Faculty, and Member of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Arts Faculty, Harvey Mudd College |


During his sabbatical in 2011-12, Professor of Literature and HMC Dean of Faculty Jeff Groves studied a rare wooden printing press, built in 1747, as a Fellow at the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, MA. To obtain a practical knowledge of the press, he measured the original, drew plans, gathered materials and tools, and then built a replica in his garage. While the replica is not yet finished, Prof. Groves will share what he learned about eighteenth-century press technology through this project. The talk will include an optional visit to the Special Collections Reading Room to see the press in its current state.
