Sing a Song exhibit now online

Sing a Song: A Celebration of Traditional Music of Ireland and Elsewhere in Print,” Special Collections’ newest online exhibit, is now on view. The exhibit displays materials from the collection of Lewis Becker, a law professor from the Villanova University School of Law.

The exhibit includes a fine collection of colorful American songsters (Case 4). The subject of Case 11 is Captain Francis O’Neill, chief of police in Chicago from 1901-1905, who was an avid bagpiper and song collector.

The online exhibit was created by Teri Ann Incrovato with assistance from Andrew Nagy and Michael Foight.

The physical exhibit, on display in Falvey from March 13 to April 28, 2006, was organized by Bente Polites and Michael Foight, with graphic design by Lorraine Gallagher-Williams and Bernadette Dierkes.
