Milligan Libraries’ Fifth Annual Book+ART Exhibit: Books as the raw material for creativity!

Milligan Libraries’ Fall event, Book+ART marked its fifth year during this year’s Homecoming weekend. Book+ART, which serves as a nice complement (a bookend event, if you will) to our annual Spring Edible Books Festival, is wonderful way for the library to engage Milligan College students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The premise of Book+ART is simple. Books serve as sources of information, knowledge, and inspiration. As physical objects, books are aesthetically pleasing. And as a raw material, books can also serve as a unique medium for creativity. The library invites the Milligan College community to use provided discarded books and transform them into works of art.

This year we had 14 entries from 9 persons. The winner of our random draw for a $25 Amazon gift card was Occupational Therapy student Lindsey Keys. Congratulations Lindsey! Milligan Libraries would like to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Book+ART event. Here are photos of this year’s entries…

Holloway Archives mounts exhibits for Homecoming 2017

Milligan College Archivist, Lindsay Kenderes hopes you will come by the main floor of the P.H. Welshimer Memorial Library to see two exhibits on display for Homecoming 2017.

A Vision For Milligan

This exhibit reveals an early history of Milligan College, with Rev. Wilson G. Barker arriving at Buffalo Creek Christian Church and establishing the Buffalo Male and Female Institute in 1866. Lawson White Hampton was a student at the Buffalo Institute around 1870-1871 and the Holloway Archives has his original class notebook featuring writings from his Composition Writing and Reading class. “To have an example of a student’s work from the early years of the Buffalo Institute is a rare find in the Archives,” said Kenderes.

Another exciting item on display is Dr. Josephus Hopwood’s telescope, which was given to him by Wilkie Snyder Bishop. Earlier this semester, on the day of the solar eclipse (August 21, 2017), Anne E. Bishop, with her nephew James Allen Bishop and family, donated this telescope to Milligan College. In 1915, Dr. Hopwood returned to Milligan to serve a second term as president. While on a walk on Emmanuel Hill he became acquainted with a little boy playing in the woods. This boy was 9-year-old Wilkie Snyder Bishop. Dr. Hopwood was intrigued by the telescope Wilkie was playing with. Wilkie shared his telescope and Hopwood used it to gaze across the valley toward Milligan College. After returning home, Wilkie’s father encouraged his son to give his telescope to Dr. Hopwood. The telescope was returned to the Bishop family after Hopwood’s death in 1935.

“I think this telescope signifies Dr. Hopwood’s vision for what Milligan College has become today. Milligan has united with Emmanuel Christian Seminary, on the spot where Wilkie Snyder Bishop shared his telescope with Dr. Hopwood. I think this was a foreshadowing moment of what Milligan now represents,” said Kenderes.

Class of 1967: Reminiscing Milligan Life 50 Years Ago

Each year at Homecoming, alumni return to unite with classmates from their graduating year. This year, the Archives celebrates the Class of 1967’s 50th Reunion by showcasing an array of student life photos and documents they would have experienced during their time at Milligan. “I think students would be surprised by some of these photos, including one showing a student with a typewriter on Pardee lawn, and a classroom photo with some students wearing ties.”
