This slideshow showcases some rare and unique highlights from the Samuel C. Williams Library's Archives & Special Collections, including the Stevens Family Collection, University Archives, Frederick W. Taylor Collection, and the John W. Lieb Memorial Collection of Leonardo da Vinci.
From its humble beginning in Edwin A. Stevens Hall in 1871, the Library at Stevens has been a place of “discovery and exploration” for generations of Stevens students, faculty, and staff. This exhibition, produced in fall 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Samuel C. Williams Library, features historic photographs, documents, and other ephemera from the Archives & Special Collections' University Archives.
This exhibit delves into more detail of the fascinating career of John William Lieb (Stevens Class of 1880). We researched his time with the Edison Company and his passionate pursuit to become a knowledgeable expert on Leonardo da Vinci, which culminated with the John W. Lieb Memorial Collection of Leonardo da Vinci at the Samuel C. Williams Library dedicated in 1932.
