Exhibit Name: The Winter Days of Providence College
Dates: December 12, 2013 - January 31, 2014
The Phillips Memorial Library is pleased to announce a new Library foyer exhibit: The Winter Days of Providence College. The exhibit highlights several major winter events in the College’s history, including the Blizzard of ’78, the famous Providence College snowball fight of February, 1969, the desolate winter of ’44, and the well-remembered giant snowman of 1982.
Accenting the exhibit are White House Christmas tree ornaments from The John V. Brennan papers collection, which is housed within the Special and Archival Collections unit of the Library. The ornaments, first produced in 1981 by the White House Historical Association, caught the eye of Mr. Brennan ’59, back in 1982 and he’s been collecting them ever since. Every year Mr. Brennan kindly sends the College the new White House ornament to add to the collection.
We hope you enjoy the new exhibit and remember to bundle up warm for this Holiday Season!
All exhibits are open to the PC Community and the General Public for free.
