The fabulous Baker-Berry Library is hosting this historic GBW 100th 
Anniversary Exhibition. New England Chapter member Deborah Howe has been the 
Dartmouth point person, and New England Chapter Exhibitions Coordinator, has 
helped to organize and install the show here at the final venue for this 
travelling exhibition.  Because of the enthusiastic support of Dartmouth, 
there will be an extended stay in New England, and we have some great events 
connected with the exhibition.
