Hand Drawn and Hand Colored

OLLI Study Group OLLI Study Group
Curator of Maps Brian Leigh Dunnigan will share the serendipitous acquisition of a depicted plan of Detroit in 1790 by Captain David William Smith. This unknown, rare map of Detroit provides early history, six years before the British troops made way for the United States troops. This map hand-drawn and hand-colored by Smith is a wonderful addition to the existing stellar map collection at the Clements.

This session for those 50 and above will meet on Wednesday, May 15, from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
