In conversation: Margaret Powell on ‘taking the train back to the 18th century’ at the Lewis Walpole Library

Margaret Powell, who retired in May as the W.S. Lewis Librarian and executive director of the Lewis Walpole Library, met with YaleNews recently to discuss the retrospective exhibition that is currently on view there, some of the biggest initiatives during her tenure, and the “amazing,” “cool,” and “wonderful” things that she will remember about the library.
