The Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Galleries have served as the major showcase for Bridwell Library Special Collections since 1990. Charles N. Prothro (1918-2001) funded the galleries in honor of his wife Elizabeth Perkins Prothro (1919-2009) and their fiftieth wedding anniversary. Reflecting Bridwell Library’s strengths and active collecting interests, the galleries were designed for books and documents to be displayed in an environmentally sound and secure space. Exhibitions often feature recent acquisitions. Exhibitions are free and open to the public.
