New Library Exhibit

April 1 – June 30, 2009

The library of Professor David French and his wife Kathrine came to Reed upon her death in 2006. Their collections contained thousands of volumes from their anthropological studies over six decades on the Warm Spring Indians of Oregon, the linguistics of native peoples worldwide, medical status of cultures, exploration and first contact, and wild plants used for subsistence. The French’s also collected humor, science-fiction, and other popular culture publications. Many hundreds of these items have become part of special collections, and a selection is on display in the library’s wall and flat cases. David French taught anthropology from 1947 to 1988; Kathrine was a research anthropologist from 1981 until 2006.
