With The Friends of the Weinberg Memorial Library
The Mutiny on The Bounty: Myth & Fact
Although the mutiny on the bounty remains a cultural touchstone, the facts have been distorted by propaganda and popular culture. In celebration of the 225th anniversary of the mutiny and the Weinberg Library’s exhibit on the topic, University benefactor, alumnus, and book collector Edward R. Leahy will speak about the exhibit of his collection of mutiny on the bounty material, the creation of the myth of Captain Bligh as a cruel tyrant and the real story of the mutiny.
Reception to follow to view the exhibit.
Event is Free & Open to the Public, Please RSVP
