Curators At Home: Treasures from the Collection

William Rasmussen and Paige Newman

Join members of the VMHC curatorial team as they tell their own stories about working with the museum’s remarkable collections, show rarely seen objects, and offer a behind-the-scenes perspective of the work being done to shape a better understanding of Virginia’s rich history. 

Among the VMHC’s nine million manuscripts and early, rare books are remarkable treasures. Letters from Virginia’s “Founding Fathers.” Records of the Virginia Company of London that founded the Jamestown colony. Early publications that define human rights. Documents that reject human slavery. This presentation introduces extraordinary items from the VMHC’s nearly two-hundred-year-old collection. With curators William Rasmussen and Paige Newman.
