Special Collections

Rudisill Currier and Ives Print Collection

Beginning in 1992, in honor of their daughters—Tricia (V'92), Vanessa and Lisbeth— John and Barbara Rudisill donated examples from their Currier & Ives print collection to the Webster Family Library. Over fifty prints are displayed on both floors of the library. The unifying theme of the collection is animals—bucolic farm scenes, children with their beloved pets, horse fairs, and playful puppies and kittens. This collection adds to the warm, inviting atmosphere of our library.
