Event description

Marquette University's Raynor Memorial Libraries, Center for the Advancement of the Humanities, and Department of History invite you to a symposium celebrating the generous gift of Tom and Nancy Cannon—The Cannon Irish Studies Collection. Professor Pádraig Ó Riain of the National University of Ireland (Cork) has described this collection as “the finest Irish studies library in private hands outside of Ireland.” The Cannon Irish Studies Collection enhances the library's rich holdings in Irish political, social, and ecclesiastical history, as well as in Irish literature, and as our speakers will highlight, it will benefit the university's faculty, students, and visitors for years to come.
