Newberry Colloquium

The Newberry Colloquium is a weekly opportunity for the Newberry community to come together and learn about research or projects being conducted by our staff, fellows, scholars-in-residence, and other invited speakers. Colloquium events are open to the Newberry community and the general public. Colloquia topics usually relate to the Newberry’s collection, and presentations are intended for a non-specialist audience.

Unless otherwise noted, the colloquium convenes on Wednesday afternoons in Towner Fellows’ Lounge on the 2nd floor of the Newberry. Refreshments are served at 3:30 pm, with the talk beginning at 4 pm. A brief discussion follows each presentation. No reservations are required in order to attend.

A Newberry Colloquium
For some time, Carl Kupfer (Chicago Map Society) and David Buisseret have been trying to assess historians’ accounts of the trails in Illinois – the Potawatomi Trail, the Shawnee Trace, the Sauk and Kickapoo Trail, the Sauk and Fox Trail and so forth. This presentation will use generally-neglected early nineteenth-century maps to establish where many of these trails ran.
