Bruce O’Brien, professor of History and American Studies, is one of four national experts who served as an adviser for the Library of Congress’ exhibition “Magna Carta: Muse and Mentor” to celebrate the document’s 800th anniversary.
The exhibition runs from Nov. 6, 2014, through Jan. 19, 2014, and will display one of only four surviving copies of the 2015 Magna Carta. On loan from the Lincoln Cathedral in England, the document will travel to several museums before its final stop at the Library of Congress. The exhibition will also feature medieval manuscripts, published works, prints, photographs, maps, posters and annotated draft opinions by justices of the U.S. Supreme Court.
