Sunday School Program

Exhibition of the Sutton Methodist Sunday School! Worcester: Charles Hamilton, 1856.

Exhibition AAS member Warren C. Lane donated a group of programs for popular entertainments and theater programs.

This one provides the program for two Sunday School performances. It is interesting that numbers 17 and 30 on the program are printed in larger type, suggesting that the topics should be of particular interest to the gathering.

Ephemeral documents such as this provide a bit of texture to the everyday events of communities. We are always delighted to receive such treasures.

--Georgia Barnhill, Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Graphic Arts

C.C. Baldwin "One day I am visited by a collector of ordination sermons; the next, by a collector of 4th of July orations; then comes a collector of geography; another wants religious newspapers; another wants every book printed in New York before 1700. I accommodate myself to all; for I want every thing and collect every thing, and I have more zeal than the whole of them: and in this way I am kept very busy."
