Every year, Special Collections & University Archives staff work together to create relevant and interesting exhibits on topics that are of interest to the University, the community, and to scholars.
This exhibit examines the life and vision of inspirational firebrand William Morris. It focuses on his written works, political activism and artistic endeavors. Morris was a man of incredible depth and breadth of talent. His creativity and industry are aspirational for today's citizens. "How We Might Live: The Vision of William Morris" seeks to instruct viewers on the rich life of William Morris and to showcase the University of Maryland Libraries' William Morris Collection.
