Over the past five years, Historical & Special Collections (HSC) staff has fielded an average of nearly 600 inquiries per year from around the world. Approximately a third of these yearly inquiries result in a visit to HSC’s reading room, the Root Room.

Unlike our reading room researchers, HSC staff rarely has the time to immerse ourselves deeply in any one item or collection. Thankfully we are fortunate to work with and learn from our researchers. “Research Revealed” is a celebration of that relationship. This exhibit features a variety of material used by six of our researchers over the past several years: Rowan Dorin, Moira Gillis, Andrew Porwancher, Geoff Shaw, Julia Stephens, and the Harvard Law School’s Program on Negotiation.

This exhibit was curated by the staff of HSC: Karen Beck, Jane Kelly, Edwin Moloy, Margaret Peachy, Mary Person, and Lesley Schoenfeld.
