Burr on exhibit - Class Notes Extras
December 2012 Issue
Through January, approximately 50 items from Brian Hardison’s extensive collection of materials once owned by or relating to Aaron Burr are on display in the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library Gallery in UGA’s Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries. On loan from Hardison (AB ’81) are materials from Burr’s military career, letters detailing his participation in several notable trials including his own trial for treason, miniature portraits of Burr and his daughter, Theodosia Burr Alston, correspondence from Alexander Hamilton, Burr’s pocket watch, and other manuscripts, pamphlets and letters. Hardison’s collection, recently exhibited at The Grolier Club in New York, is the subject of his new book, Burriana. After starting his law career 20 years ago, Hardison began collecting memorabilia of Burr, a former vice president who is best known for killing former treasury secretary Alexander Hamilton in a duel. For exhibit hours and other information, go to http://www.libs.uga.edu/hargrett/index.shtml.
