"Murder Most Foul: Homicide in Early America"

June 11 - October 5, 2012

Curated by J. Kevin Graffagnino
Clements Library Director

This exhibit looks at murder in America from the seventeenth century to 1900 using the rich resources on crime and punishment held by the Clements. Murder and the source materials about it touch on many aspects of early American social, political, geographic, ethnic, gender, and legal history, and the Clements collections are distinctive windows on this fascinating aspect of our national heritage.

Open to the public in the Main Room of the Clements Library, Monday through Thursday from 1:00 pm to 4:45 pm. The Clements Library is located on the campus of the University of Michigan at 909 South University Avenue, Ann Arbor. For further information, visit our website or call 734-764-2347.
