Madison Exhibit on Display in Carrier Library
Johlene Hess, Co-Editor and Library Assistant
In honor of James Madison's 250th Birthday, Carrier Library presented an exhibit of Madison artifacts from Special Collections in the lobby and hosted a special exhibition of items from the James Madison Museum in Orange, Va. The President's Conference Room 109 was converted temporarily into an exhibit space.
Other items displayed included Dolley Madison's black lace shawl, an elaborate crocheted baby cap by Dolley and James Madison's spectacles.
The James Madison Museum, in Orange, Virginia is closed for renovation until April 21, 2001. If you missed the exhibit here, you can see these items and many more in the James Madison Museum collection at their reopening on April 23.
