After an introduction by Pres. Knapp and brief remarks from English Chair Gayle Wald, Witmore--the author of two monographs and many articles on Shakespeare and a former Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, Madison--addressed the group, noting that one of his goals as Folger Director is to make the Library's resources available to as many people as possible. Programs such as the GW Folger Seminar, which allows GW undergraduates access to rare books and other manuscripts, is part of this vision.
|Folger Director Michael Witmore|
We wish Witmore all the best in his tenure, and look forward to ongoing collaborations with the Folger.
