This exhibition, in conjunction with the 200th anniversary, on May 31, 2019, of the birth of Walt Whitman, will examine fragments from Whitman's later life, spent in Camden and Philadelphia, exploring his writings, his publications, his persona, his likenesses, his friendships, his death, and even his bridge.

This exhibition will be based on holdings in Penn's Walt Whitman Collections
