Although the main galleries at the Harry Ransom Center are currently closed for the installation of the next exhibit, Jullianne Ballou and I have curated a selection of collection items for display outside the second floor Reading and Viewing Room: “Gems from the Little Alphabet.”
The Little Alphabet collection is a gathering of manuscripts by creators for whom the Harry Ransom Center possesses less than one box of material. The papers contain some of the Center’s most interesting gems, often with very little context included. If you’re on campus at UT this summer, these materials will be on view through August. Visiting the second floor exhibit space is free and open to the public 9:00am-5:00pm, Monday through Saturday.
