New Exhibits Available Online

Posted on May 19, 2014

Archives student assistants have been working very hard to make our collections more visible. Because of their effort we have a new digital exhibit available on Mary Louise Miller Spang's, class of 1933, life as a composer, and coming soon "Students, No Longer Dates" a reflection on Wheaton's decision to become coeducational.

Mary Louise Miller Spang:

This exhibit was created by Kimberley Hurst, class of 2015, and Thomas Van Duyne, class of 2014, while student assistants in the Marion B. Gebbie Archives. The goal of this project was to bring the never-before-played music of Wheaton alumna Mary Louise Miller Spang, class of 1933, to life in an unforgettable evening of music. We would like to the thank the Office of Alumnae/i Relations, Elizabeth Ericson, Delvyn Case, Ellen Kane, and the Wheaton College Chamber Orchestra for making all of this possible.

This exhibit culminates almost two years of work by Kimberley Hurst and Thomas Van Duyne. Kimberley collected the content for this project, as well as processed the Mary Louise Miller Spang Collection. Thomas wrote the code for the project and managed the digitizing of the Selfish Giant for the Chamber Orchestra's performance.
