A Legacy of Leadership: The Chancellors and Presidents of Syracuse University Digital Exhibition
As part of the continuing commemorations of Syracuse University’s sesquicentennial, Syracuse University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center has released “A Legacy of Leadership: The Chancellors and Presidents of Syracuse University” digital exhibition. This online exhibition mirrors and expands upon the physical exhibition that has been on display on the first floor of Bird Library since September 2019. It is a companion to the Libraries’ marquee sesquicentennial digital exhibition “150 Years of Tradition at Syracuse University.”
Curated by Pan Am 103 Archivist and Assistant University Archivist Vanessa St. Oegger-Menn, “A Legacy of Leadership” includes documents and photographs from the Syracuse University Archives. From Chancellor Alexander Winchell to Chancellor Kent Syverud, this digital exhibition examines how each of the 12 individuals who have held the University’s highest office have helped to shape the institution over the past 150 years.
