Event description

Description

The Indiana Archives presents Education in Early Indiana, an exhibition focusing on the development of education and its impact on the State’s people. Drawn largely from the Indiana Archives’ newly acquired collections from Vincennes University, this exhibition showcases the many factors that helped shape Indiana’s educational system.

Long before Indiana achieved statehood, pioneers established opportunities to learn where few had existed. Settlers believed education would shape Indiana’s future for generations.

Visitors will see rare, fragile and historic books and documents from some of Indiana’s earliest libraries and the establishment of education.

Education in Early Indiana opens March 7 and runs through July 31, 2018 in the Archives' Reading Room.

A reception by invitation takes place on March 6, 2018 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Attendees can tour the exhibition and enjoy light refreshments. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
