The Samuel W. Pennypacker Collection
In 1920 Schwenkfelder Library officials purchased a large portion of the over 1200 lots at the final auction of the late Governor Samuel Pennypacker's collections. Pennypacker waws a well-known historian and antiquarian bibliophile and had a keen eye for a treasure and bargain. This exhibit, which will be on display in the Fraktur Gallery, is being held in conjunction with our joint symposium on November 2 with the Goschenhoppen Historians, "Studying the Pennsylvania Dutch."
