The Bryn Mawr Club of Southern California has labored heroically over the last twelve years to raise money for student scholarships and the library by selling note cards featuring illustrations from the library’s collections. Maria Rudolph ’81 guided the work and put an enormous amount of energy into selecting images, organizing the sales, and filling the orders. Other key volunteers over the years included Tracy Cogswell 1992, Jennifer Hixon ’81, Amy Hughes 1995, Kristine MacRae 1994, Nikole Senecal ’88, Carol Silbergeld MSS SW ’73, Rebecca Tuynman 1997, Annie Wright 1992, and many others. Maria and the club have had to give up the work this year, but many of the cards continue to be available for sale in the college bookstore, and we are discussing with the bookstore offering cards through its website. We are optimistic that this will happen sometime in the next few months. In the meantime, we want to offer our heartfelt thanks to Maria Rudolph and her friends in the Bryn Mawr Club of Southern California for their extraordinary efforts on behalf of the Library.
Reproductions of selected images from the College’s art and rare book collections are now available as prints, and every sale benefits the Library. The first works that we selected featured in Worlds to Discover: all eight of the Mary Cassatt drypoints, a woodcut by Ikeda Eisen, and the temple at Philae from the Description de l’Egypte. We will add more reproductions in the future – let us know what art works you would most like to see offered. The museum-quality archival prints are on sale at http://www.requestaprint.net/brynmawr/.
