On Saturday, May 17, the Library’s George Washington letter, written in 1779, made its first trip off-campus for a public viewing. The occasion was the designation of The Brewster House (c.1665) in Setauket being placed on the New York State and National Registers of Historic Places. One Brewster, Caleb, played an important role in the Long Island spy ring during the American Revolution, as described in General Washington’s letter. Accompanying the letter to the event were Kristen Nyitray, Richie Feinberg, and in costume, Maryanne Vigneaux and Chris Filstrup. Photographs of the event reside in the upper right side of the Library’s official blog, The Screen Porch.
