The UMD Libraries celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Gordon W. Prange Collection

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.  As a part of the celebration, Special Collections and University Archives at the University of Maryland Libraries opened an exhibition, “Alice 150 Years and Counting…The Legacy of Lewis Carroll: Selections from the Collection of August and Clare Imholtz”.   The exhibit takes place in the Maryland Room Gallery on the 1st Floor of Hornbake Library North and will be on display from October 2015 through July 2016.

The Prange Collection also holds several Alice-related materials — translations into Japanese of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, as well as adaptations for teaching materials and young children’s magazines.  You can view this mini-exhibit, Alice in Japan, in the Maryland Room (adjacent to the Maryland Room Gallery), September 2015 through December 2015.
