In the fall of 1962 the Smith College rare book department moved to spacious and well-appointed quarters in the northwest corner of Neilson Library. The room was named in honor of Ruth Mortimer in 1994. This exhibition celebrates fifty years in our current location. On display are books, manuscripts, and photographs documenting the state of rare books at Smith before 1962; plans for the new addition; the four curators; and items from our collections. The exhibition is in the Book Arts Gallery, Neilson Library, Smith College.
