Irwin Library was the site of the portrait unveiling “Abraham Lincoln 200 Years” Thursday, September 23, 2010.  Mr. Gregory Silver donated the portrait to Butler University in honor of his father, Dr. David M. Silver, former professor of history and government and dean of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences from 1963 – 1983.  A reception celebrating the gift was held with approximately 125 Silver friends, family, and Butler faculty and staff attending.

The portrait will hang in Irwin Library’s Collaborative Learning Space for the academic year and will then move to a more permanent location in Jordan Hall.  Drop by Irwin Library to view this vivid, dynamic portrait of one of our greatest presidents.
