Sullivan Museum Presents “Explorers of Norwich”

On August 31, Norwich University’s Sullivan Museum and History Center opened “Explorers of Norwich,” an exhibition highlighting Norwich alumni whose lives shaped and changed our nation during the mid-19th and early-20th centuries. During their day, Hiram Paulding, George M. and George P. Colvocoresses, George M. Totten, General Grenville Dodge, William Brenton Boggs, Truman Seymour, and many other Norwich alumni traversed the nation, the continents, and the world in search of new lands, new opportunities, and new discoveries. On view are items reflecting the stories of the U.S. Exploring Expedition (also known as the Wilkes Expedition), and many more excursions. The exhibition is sponsored in part by the TAWANI Foundation, TAWANI Enterprises’ philanthropic organization, and several major museums in the Northeast.

It remains open through June 28, 2018.

Oarsmen Near a Cliff, William Brenton Boggs, Class of 1828.
