Glasser Collection, from Monday, June 16 through Friday, July 11 on the fifth floor of the Wimberly Library, Boca Raton campus. The exhibition features influential texts that have contributed to western civilization since the invention of the printing press 500 years ago and materials from the Glasser collection, which honors the World War II bombardier and former president of Miss Universe, Inc.
