Inventor, entrepreneur, collector, and curator Jay Walker '77 will speak about the role of imagination in our past and future, June 7 at 4:30 p.m., to open the exhibit, "Collecting Imagination: Treasures from the Walker Library of the History of Human Imagination."

'Collecting Imagination' showcases imagination as a driving force throughout history and celebrates the adventure of discovery, learning, and creativity. The exhibition features such treasures as an original Soviet Sputnik alongside a U.S. Vanguard satellite, a cuneiform cone from 2000 BC, and a leaf from the Gutenberg Bible.

The event, part of Reunion Weekend, is hosted by Cornell Library's Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections.
