Pace History

Want to know more about the history of Pace? The Birnbaum Library currently has three displays that delve into the university’s history. On the first floor in the library foyer, you’ll find our newest display case, filled with newspaper clippings and artifacts from bygone eras; as you proceed to the second floor, check out the six framed photographs depicting the NYC campus location at different stages over the last century; and when you reach the second floor, take in the slide presentation on the LCD screen above the display table. Thanks to archivist Ellen Sowchek for providing the material.
