Show all series level scope and content notes
The Lafayette Collection contains more than 11,000 items documenting all aspects of
the public and private life of Gilbert du Motier, marquis de Lafayette
The guide to the Lafayette collection was produced with funding provided by the
United States Department of Education grant Title II-C, "Strengthening Research
Library Resources": The French Revolution Collections at Cornell University: a
Retrospective Conversion and Preservation Project.
Project staff included Jean V. Callahan, Peggy John, and Isabel Rivera. The initial
Lafayette website (guide and exhibit) was conceived by Jean V. Callahan and
implemented by Noni Korf Vidal. In 2007, major improvements were made by Laurent
Ferri, curator of the exhibition "Lafayette, Citizen of Two Worlds", with the
technical assistance of Ken Williams and Evan Earle.
