Houghton Library

The Houghton75 podcast presents different voices and perspectives on Houghton Library in its seventy-fifth year. Throughout 2017, Harvard’s principal repository of rare books and manuscripts is celebrating its world-class collections of primary sources, and support of research and teaching over the last 75 years. The series kicks off with Harvard faculty members sharing their thoughts on the collection item they chose for the exhibition HIST 75H: A Masterclass on Houghton Library. The chosen item acts as a springboard for a broader conversation about their research and teaching. The interviews cover topics as varied as Theodore Roosevelt as a symbol of masculinity and the history of race in American music. Visit www.houghton75.org for more information.
