The exhibition includes manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, playbills, posters, inscribed books, and other unique and rare materials by and pertinent to the Nobel Prize-winning playwright.
By placing his impressive collection at Washington University, alumni Harley Hammerman has made the Julian Edison Department of Special Collections an important center for O’Neill studies.
The University Libraries will be honoring Hammerman and celebrating the collection with a Eugene O’Neill symposium on October 6, 2023.
This exhibition was organized by Modern Literature Collection and Manuscripts Curator Joel Minor.
