Posted on October 28, 2010

While doing research, Lance Heidig, a reference and instruction librarian in Research and Learning Services in Olin Library, discovered that Mark Twain came to Ithaca twice while visiting nearby Elmira: once in the summer of 1877 to see friends, and then again in December 1884 as part of his "Twins of Genius" lecture tour.
