Ned O’Gorman: Through a Poet’s Lens

Photograph of Millie Harford, Joe Simon, Jeannette Sanger, Ned O'Gorman and others at the Ricardo O’Gorman Garden and Center by Joyce Ravid, 2000.

A new exhibition in the Special Collections Gallery, Ned O'Gorman: through a poet’s lens, explores the life of the Catholic poet, educator, and artist using manuscript collections held in the Booth Family Center for Special Collections as well as materials from the personal collections of the exhibition curator and Nicholas B. Scheetz.

The exhibition is guest curated by author and journalist Elizabeth Howard, editor of Ned O'Gorman: A Glance Back (2016) and The Book(s), Ned O'Gorman Artist Books (2017), and dedicated to Nicholas B. Scheetz (1952-2016), curator of manuscripts at the Georgetown University Library from 1976 to 2013.

The exhibition can be seen on the 5th floor of Lauinger Library, and is also online. More about the manuscript collections can be found in the finding aids for the Ned O'Gorman Papers Parts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, and in the Leo J. Kasun Papers.
