Kelvin Smith Library shared the The Many Faces of Wonderland, a special collections exhibit curated by Arnold Hirshon, retired CWRU Vice Provost and University Librarian, in September as the university hosted the Lewis Carroll Society of North America’s fall conference. 

The exhibit included items from Hirshon’s personal collection as well as items donated by Jon Lindseth, found in the library’s special collections. The collection comprises mostly English language editions of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, and features the work of dozens of different illustrators. When cataloging is complete, the Lindseth collection will add the Kelvin Smith Library to the list of significant Carroll collections in North America.
