The Osborne Family of Waterville had several important associations with Colby. The college's recent decision to rename the President's house creates an opportunity to explore many facets of the Osborne story. Primary source materials, including documents and photographs in our own college archives, preserve traces of the Osbornes' lives, placing these family members within their historical and cultural contexts. Please join us for a thoughtful discussion, followed by a reception.
