The books on display range from 1700 to 1903, showcase eight different languages, and tell a story about how his personal and professional reading choices were partly responsible for shaping his open-mindedness and forward-thinking decision making.

This exhibit is located in the Lally Reading Room of Schaffer Library, 1st floor.
