Frauds, Fakes and Forgeries: Deception in the Archives

April 17 @ 8:30 am - July 31 @ 4:30 pm

Many libraries and archives have in their collections items that are not what they seem. Sometimes with sound reasons, and sometimes unintentionally, these institutions provide a home for documents that are forged, counterfeit, fraudulent, fake and honest facsimiles that are mistaken for authentic originals. Learn about WSU Manuscripts, Archives and Special Collections’ featured “frauds,” including a forged Abraham Lincoln manuscript, rare books mutilated and altered by a famous book thief, and other examples of problematic documents.
