Visiting Committee Prize for Undergraduate Book Collecting Winners Announced
April 22, 2003 -- Harvard students
Phoebe Kosman, ‘05, and Roland Lamb, ‘06, have both been awarded
first prize in this year’s Visiting Committee Prize for Undergraduate
Book Collecting, sponsored by the Members of the Board of Overseer's Committee
to Visit the Harvard University Library. Finding overwhelming merit in both
Kosman’s entry, ‘To Arlie’: An Intergenerational Collection
of Early 20th Century Boys’ Books, and Lamb’s entry, A
Personal Encounter with Philosophy, the jury decided it was appropriate
to grant two first place awards. Anna Harkey, ‘04, won third prize for
her entry, Out of Thin Air: A Collection of Old Time Radio Books and Memorabilia.
Roland Lamb, Phoebe Kosman, and Anna Harkey are honored for their book collecting efforts.
The Visiting Committee Prize for Undergraduate Book Collecting was established in the spring of 1977 to recognize and encourage book collecting by undergraduates at Harvard. Cole, who has coordinated the competition since its inception, annually selects a new jury from among Harvard College Library staff with noted bibliographic expertise.
