Nancy Drew & Friends Online Exhibit

The University of Maryland had a neat 75th anniversary exhibition in 2005 and now has an online display you can view! Taken from their website is a blurb about the event:

"To celebrate the 75th year of publishing of Nancy Drew books, The University of Maryland Libraries featured an exhibit on Girls’ Series books in the fall of 2005 in the Hornbake Library Maryland Room Gallery. This exhibit highlights the girls’ series books in the Rose and Joseph Pagnani Collection in the University of Maryland Libraries. This collection contains over 300 books from 33 different series published from 1917 to 1980. Although Nancy Drew is the star of the exhibit, other girls’ series heroines such as Vicki Barr, Sue Barton, Judy Bolton, and the Dana Girls are also included."

They had a nice exhibition and speakers for the event. Here's a link to the online version of the exhibit:

The online exhibit is a really great wealth of information, I recommend you check it out!
