Summer 2010: Campaign Chronicle
Couple Gives Collection to Emory Library
New York artist Camille Billops and her husband, James Hatch, are donating to Emory’s Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) their entire collection of books, letters, documents, and art; the art collection has an estimated value of $1 million. The collection includes oils, pastels, watercolors, prints, lithographs, and ceramics by a wide range of twentieth-century artists, including Billops herself, Ronald Joseph, Emma Amos, and many others. In 2004 the couple donated their collection of materials documenting African American life and culture.
