Special Collections Exhibit: "Road Tripping: Journeys over the mountains and through the desert"

Summer is a time for piling family, maybe even grandma, friends, and pets into the family car - be it a station wagon or covered wagon - and head off for a great adventure. Let Special Collections's current exhibit help you reminisce about your experiences of this time-honored tradition. The exhibit offers glimpses into travel throughout the western United States. The materials on display reflect various modes of travel in the region taken up by individuals and families during the 19th and 20th centuries. On display are first-hand accounts such as diaries and photographs, and ephemera such as road signs and marketing materials. See how these road trips from the past could lead you to your next great adventure! This exhibit will be on view in the Claremont Colleges Library North Lobby from June 6th to August 4th.
