An exhibition honoring Yale’s outgoing president is on view through Oct. 4 in the Memorabilia Room of the Sterling Memorial Library (just inside the Wall Street entrance).

“Richard C. Levin, President of Yale, 1993-2013: An Exhibit of Documents Highlighting His Accomplishments” documents milestones during his 20-year tenure. It features photographs, memorabilia, correspondence, speeches, and printed ephemera from the Richard C. Levin Presidential Records in Manuscripts and Archives and photographs from the Office of Public Affairs and Communications.

The exhibit — curated by Manuscripts & Archives staff members — highlights the inauguration of Levin in 1993, the Yale Tercentennial in 2001, the University’s international programs and distinguished visitors, the purchase of West Campus, and examples of Yale-New Haven initiatives such as the creation of the Yale Homebuyer’s program and the New Haven Promise scholarship program.

It is open to the public free of charge Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.–4:45 p.m.
