This slide is one of a small group of World War I era glass slides depicting aviation activities that were found among a much larger collection of glass negatives and lantern slides in our old vault. As you can see, the slide is broken. Can you help us identify this image?

Special Collections at Honnold/Mudd owns a significant number of 17th century pamphlets, primary sources that are invaluable for scholarship and that form the highlight of this show. Using these pamphlets as documentary evidence, graduate students of Dr. Lori Anne Ferrell's course "Britain's Wars of Religion, 1642-1649" examine various aspects of Charles I's life leading up to, and beyond, his execution. Categories considered are Charles as Exile, Charles as Traitor, Charles as Criminal, Charles as Absolute King, and Charles as Saint.

The exhibition will be on view November 24, 2008-January 30, 2009, in Honnold/Mudd Library.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a discussion and presentation of the pamphlets will take place as part of CGU's History Forum Series, December 4, 2008 at 4:00 pm, in the Founders Room of the Honnold/Mudd Library.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

This unpublished manuscript was found among Beerbohm's papers and acquired by William W. Clary for the library on Oxford that he collected, inspired by the similarities between the Claremont Colleges plan or organization to that of Oxford. Clary gave his Oxford library to The Claremont Colleges for study and teaching in 1952.
