About TCHS

This exhibit was curated by Kimberly Sims, Amy McDonald, and Meghan Lyon. The curators would like to thank Meg Brown, Beth Doyle, Tim Pyatt, Crystal Reinhardt, and Mark Zupan for their assistance in preparing the exhibit.

The drawing of a merman that appears on the exhibit banner is taken from a five dollar bill issued in North Carolina during the Revolutionary War. This bill, along with other examples of Revolutionary War-era currency, was originally donated to the Trinity College Historical Society, and now forms part of the Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library’s Currency Collection.
