Collection Scope and Content Note


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 (1757-1834).

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 exhibitions "Lafayette, Citizen of Two Worlds", with the technical asistance of Ken Williams and Evan Earle.
