John V.. Brennan ’59 Collection of White House Ornaments

The Library Display Committee is at it again!!  It’s all about displays, ’bout displays, no treble!!  Tis the season to exhibit the items found in Special and Archival Collections. Located in the library foyer on the left side as you walk in,  photographs from past Christmas tree lighting ceremonies to An Advent Service of Lessons and Carols provide the backdrop for A Christmas Celebration!

Please take a moment to enjoy the White House ornaments from the John V. Brennan ’59 Collection artfully arranged as a Christmas tree along with various Christmas cards from past Providence College presidents.

Read about Warren Harding, 29th President of the United States (1921-1923) and the 2014 ornament…interesting facts!

Be safe in your travels and enjoy this holiday season!
