From August through December, 2006, the Aubrey Watzek Library will be showing "The Literature of the Lewis & Clark Expedition," an exhibit that draws from the extensive collection of books, maps, manuscripts, newspapers and literary materials on the expedition at Lewis & Clark College. The exhibit features sixty rare items from the college's collection of expedition-related printed material and is composed of twelve display cases plus a number of framed wall pieces. Highlights include volumes from Lewis and Clark's travelling library, early newspapers and government publications reporting on the expedition, early foreign language editions of Patrick Gass's journal, and a copy of the 1814 Biddle-Allen edition of Lewis and Clark's journals in original boards. This will be the final venue for this exhibit, which has been traveling around the country since the beginning of the Lewis and Clark Expedition Bicentennial in 2003. It has been displayed at Monticello; the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia; the Louisville Free Public Library; The Boston Athenaeum; the Westfield Memorial Library, Westfield, New Jersey; Fort Mandan; Oregon Historical Society, Washington State Historical Society; Denver Public Library; Seattle Public Library; TamÃ¡stslikt Cultural Institute, Pendleton, Oregon; and Idaho State Historical Society.
