Happy Birthday, Martin Van Buren - The Final Round

Last year we set out to quietly honor The Red Fox of Kinderhook, who was president when the Athenaeum opened in 1838--and the rest is history. Given the wild emotions that we now know MVB to provoke, we decline to elaborate on the plans for this year's observance, though we can promise that MVB biographer Ted Widmer will be on hand and we do have a small but impressive display of MVB ephemera kindly donated to the Athenaeum over the past year. Free and open to the public, though perhaps not for the faint of heart.
