Special Collections Librarys Inglis exhibition now open
Student bohemian, social worker Wobblie, anarchist and librarianAgnes Inglis transformed a love for radicalism into a lifelong work. Along the way, she transformed a 1911 donation of photographs, letters, books, pamphlets, posters and other artifacts into the foremost archive of radical literature in the country. The collections are profiled in an exhibition at the Special Collections Library on the 7th floor of the Hatcher Graduate Library. The exhibit, open 10 a.m.5 p.m. Mon.Fri. and 10 a.m.noon Sat., continues through Sept. 3.
Inglis (18701952), first curator of the Labadie Collection, used her network of friends and associates in the world of anarchism and socialism to build on the collection of books and papers donated to the U-M by fellow anarchist Joseph Labadie. Labadie was a Michigan-born labor leader and activist, and printer by trade. He printed many of his own essays and much of his own poetry, as well as the writings of others.
Agnes Inglis was the daughter of James Inglis, who built Inglis House, which has been the Universitys official guest house since 1954.
