By the Book: Making–And Breaking!–The Rules

archives16_300Ah, rules! Where would we be without them? According to some, we would be savages at the dinner table, we couldn’t shoe a horse, and Penn students would be dueling willy-nilly! As a result, rules have flourished: governments issued them, activists challenged them, and inquisitors enforced them. And literary critic Burton Rascoe had so little faith in his own ability to follow the rules of society that he purchased pre-printed apologies to send following events! As part of Philly Archives Month, join the catalogers of the Kislak Center to meet the medieval to modern role models and scape-graces who inhabit our collections.

If you missed the event, which was held October 25, 2016, check out the online version of the evening!
