The William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan is pleased to announce the creation of a new web resource on Norton Strange Townshend (1815-1895), the abolitionist, Congressman, and pioneering agricultural educator. The online exhibit features dozens of scanned manuscripts, printed items, and images from the Norton Strange Townshend Family Papers, which are now open for research. Among the highlights are Townshend's antislavery lecture notes and essays, items relating to Ohio Agricultural College and Ohio A&M, letters from Townshend's friend and mentor Salmon P. Chase, and daguerreotypes produced by Townshend's brother-in-law, Thomas M. Easterly. The exhibit also provides historical context and biographical information on the Townshend Family.
