Join us in celebrating the launch of the May Bragdon Diaries Project. May Bragdon (1865-1947), the daughter of abolitionists and the sister of architect Claude Bragdon, lived and worked in Rochester. She created remarkable diaries, augmenting her manuscript with original photographs, theater programs and ephemera. The ten diaries spanning 1893-1914 present an illustrated view of the life of a single working woman during a transformational era. Developed by a team of Library staff, the May Bragdon Diaries Project presents a transcribed and annotated facsimile edition of these ten diaries. In addition to an introduction to the searchable website, this event offers an opportunity to view the exhibition “Glorious, Vibrant, and Vital: Women in Claude Bragdon’s Life” which is on view in the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections through August 5, 2016.
