Grand Jubilee Poster

Grand Jubilee Poster

The Grand Jubilee poster is most likely the only piece of ephemera that has survived the Seminary fire of April 22nd, 1857, with the exception of a few billing records. The Jubilee was held to celebrate the successful completion of  the first semester of school.  Three hundred and fifty tickets were sold at 50 cents each. Funds were to be used to  “purchase of  Chemical and  Philosophical Apparatus for the Institution.”
