“Getting High at Harvard: Studying the Ludlow-Santo Domingo (LSD) Library at Houghton Library”

Houghton celebrates what would have been the collector Julio Santo Domingo’s 60th birthday with an in-depth look at his creation, the LSD Library, from one student’s perspective. Birthday cake will be served!

Jensen Davis is a sophomore at Harvard College, joint-concentrating in History and Literature and Women and Gender Studies. She was a summer 2017 SHARP/Houghton Library Fellow with a project focused on researching the origins of the psychedelic movement in America. She used the Ludlow-Santo Domingo Library extensively in her research.

This event is free and open to the public.
