April 2 to June 20, 2011 -- Millar Library, 1st Floor Elevator Lobby
The exhibit, "The Gift of the Word: An Exhibition of Recent Acquisitions to PSU Library Special Collections," celebrates the legacy of Gordon Hunter. His love of books and his passion for history inspired him to make a gift to the Library's Special Collections through the Oregon Community Foundation that each year helps the Library acquire new rare and significant books and manuscripts to support the teaching and research at Portland State University. This exhibit, researched, curated and designed by PSU students and faculty, represents the active engagement and learning at the heart of Portland State.
