Wonders from the World's Fair Collection of John R. Reynolds - Henry Madden Library - Fresno

The Special Collections Research Center presents selections from the recent donation by John R. Reynolds to the Donald G. Larson Collection on International Expositions and Fairs. Highlighting decorative artifacts such as gemstone glass, hand painted fans, and souvenir pillows and myriad other decorations and ephemera from early 20th Century World's Fairs, the exhibit will be on display through the spring 2019 academic term. The Donald G. Larson Collection on International Expositions and Fairs is among the largest publicly accessible collections of World's Fair artifacts on the globe. The collection consists of approximately 1,600 books and more than 6,500 pamphlets, postcards, photographs, sheet music, and other materials dating as far back as the Great Exhibition in London in 1851. It has been used for research for many world-class exhibits and projects since its endowment by Don Larson. Wonders from the Wondrous Worlds' Fair collection of John R.
