Cover Story
“My first reaction when I heard that
we had these letters was disbelief
mixed with excitement!” says Gianna
D’Ambrosca ’12. “As a history student
I was especially excited that they are
written by historical figures whom
I had studied and admired. To have
something tangible from someone I’d
only read about in books was very cool.”
An extraordinary
collection recently
given to Marist
College lets students,
researchers, and the
public see history
up close.
