Robert Caro Archive Coming to New-York Historical Society
The New-York Historical Society will host "Turn Every Page": Inside the Robert A. Caro Archive, the first public exhibition drawn from the archive of the author of The Power Broker and the multi-book biography The Years of Lyndon Johnson. The exhibition, which will open on October 24, will "provide an intimate view of how Caro started his career and how he worked as a reporter," and include the author's research notebooks, handwritten interview notes, scrapbooks, photographs, original manuscript pages, and one of Caro’s Smith Corona Electra 210 typewriters.
"Turn Every Page" was curated by Michael Ryan, Sue Ann Weinberg Director Emeritus of the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library; Edward O’Reilly, curator of manuscripts for the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library; and Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts. Click here for more information.
