The latest Henderson Library exhibit, entitled Presidential Libraries, was installed in honor of the recent lecture by former President Jimmy Carter and First Lady Rosalynn Carter, as well as in observance of Presidents Day (celebrated the 3rd Monday in February, which is February 18th this year). The exhibit showcases the Public Papers of the Presidents, presidential memorabilia, presidential photographs from famous New York Times presidential photographer George Tames (including the best-known Loneliest Job photograph of John F. Kennedy), a selection of books by Jimmy Carter, and Georgia Southern publications documenting the Carters’ previous visits to Georgia Southern and their momentous work toward social justice. The exhibit will run from February 1-28, 2013 in the Browsing Section of the second floor of the library. A related exhibit honoring Franklin D. Roosevelt for his foresight in initiating the Presidential Library system is located in the Government Documents exhibit area in the Learning Commons, also on the second floor. Special thanks to Janet Burns for her expert assistance with the exhibit and signage, and to Sam Russell for assistance with the LibGuide. You can find more information about the Carters using the Presidential Libraries Exhibit LibGuide available here.
