The Founding Documents Display Case

Constructed through the generosity of William R. Harris ’40, R. Rhett Austell, Jr. ’48, John C. Walsh ’54, and the General Electric Company Plastics Division in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, the “Shrine of the Founding Documents” was designed by Burr and McCallum Architects of Williamstown, Massachusetts, and constructed by local craftspeople. It incorporates details drawn from the Chapin Library’s copy of the Articles of the Carpenters Company of Philadelphia (1786), as well as the latest in materials and technology to protect the Founding Documents from harmful light, vandalism, and theft.
