Strengthening Ties: Cornelius Vanderbilt and the Founding of Vanderbilt University

About the Project

This semester, students examined journals, codes of conduct, admissions logs and letters in the Special Collections Library and placed them in context with the university’s and the nation’s history. Fellows curated an exhibition about their topic and presented a report on what they learned about Vanderbilt.
