Curator Cheney Schopieray talked about the Special Collections of the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan and displayed early printed accounts of North America, including a letter written by Christopher Columbus in 1493, talking about his discovery of the new world. The Collection also features manuscripts that tell the story of the British accounts of the Revolutionary war and a letter from Benedict Arnold to the British.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2013 LCV Cities Tour” in Ann Arbor, Michigan, from October 21-25 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Comcast Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
