Testimonial: Scott Newstok, Grinnell College

Scott Newstok

My semester of immersion in the Newberry's archives set me on my scholarly path. In fact, my work with the Cowley Papers that term led to my fascination with Kenneth Burke and, years later, a scholarly edition of his Shakespeare criticism. It was also my introduction to the public face of a research library, as I worked at the circulation desk. My admiration for the Newberry’s mutually reinforcing commitments to humanities scholarship and public outreach has only grown in the two decades since. Thank you to the ACM for sustaining this singular program!
