We are grateful for our donors, including members of the Newberry Associates, President’s Fellows, and Society of Collectors, whose generous gifts further the Newberry’s mission to strengthen and care for our extraordinary collection and freely share it with thousands of people each year.

The Newberry hosts a number of events throughout the year to thank our various donor groups for their support. Please see the listing below for more information about upcoming events.

Upcoming Events

Tuesday, October 22, 2019
For the third annual Forbidden Newberry, we expose a selection of sordid items just in time for Halloween.
Forbidden Newberry: Volume Three will feature an array of materials exploring the theme of hidden identities, the use of disguise to mask “immoral” behavior, and the history of Halloween. Following drinks and hor d’oeuvres, attendees will be able to join curator-led tours of the materials.

Members of the Blatchford Society and other special guests are invited to join us for the annual Blatchford Society Luncheon.
