The House That Walsh Built Highlights SFS Centennial

School of Foreign Service Card

The Library is pleased to join the centennial celebration of Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS) with an exhibition in the Fairchild and Special Collections Galleries on the fifth floor of Lauinger.The House That Walsh Built: A Century of Georgetown’s School of Foreign Service is on display through January.

The exhibition highlights the founding of SFS, the development of its programs to meet the needs of a changing world, and the impact of its graduates and faculty on global commerce, diplomacy, security, economic development, and culture. The objects, photos, and documents, many of which are owned by the Library, present a portrait of a school shaped by pioneering men and women, bold ideas, and a commitment to the values of global cooperation, cross-cultural understanding, and service to others. It also looks to the future of SFS, as the School expands its influence and deepens its curriculum in global business, science and technology, development, and culture.

The exhibition is guest curated by Will Layman, Executive Director of the SFS Centennial and Jeffrey Cirillo (SFS’20), with assistance from Georgetown University Archivist Lynn Conway.
