On Display: Nipping the Buds of Prejudice

Nipping the Buds of Prejudice
Molding the Young Men and Women of 18th and 19th Century New Paltz
Exhibition by Daniel Berger

SUNY New Paltz student and former Historic Huguenot Street intern Daniel Berger has curated an exhibit now on display in the DuBois Fort Visitors Center until July 25th. As Daniel explains, “the exhibit follows the shift of New Paltz education from Calvinist pedagogy to gender stratified moral conditioning. I hope to tell that story with hard evidence that you can see for yourself in the exhibit.”

Featuring a number of archival photos and documents, this is a great exhibit for anyone interested in local history, education, and the origins of SUNY New Paltz.
