Dear colleagues -

The HLS Library’s Historical & Special Collections is pleased to announce that its new exhibit “‘Where Mis’ry Moans': Four Prison Reformers in 18th & 19th Century England” is now on view in the Caspersen Room, Langdell Hall. The exhibit focuses on four prison reformers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries—John Howard, George Onesiphorus Paul, Elizabeth Fry, and John T. Burt—who worked to make prisons more humane and reformatory. Curated by Margaret Peachy and Mary Person, it will be on view from 9 to 5 daily through April 24, 2015. A companion website to the exhibit can be found here.

Best wishes, Karen
