Tales of Pennsylvania

Surrey student spending summer researching enslavement for U.S. college and museum.

Surrey’s Rachel Lim, a rising senior political science major at Haverford College in Haverford, Penn., will spend the summer conducting research on the Chew Family papers collection at the Cliveden of the National Trust.

Lim will interpret primary resource items from as early as the 18th century that cover tales of enslavement, land transactions and stories of séances in order to create a physical exhibit for the museum.

Lim will be working under the auspices of Haverford College’s John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center, which seeks to enhance the intellectual and cultural life at Haverford by fostering challenging exchange among faculty, students, and diverse communities of thinkers and innovators.

To accomplish this mission, the center sponsors programs that promote relationships between classic humanistic study and contemporary intellectual, artistic, and ethical currents in the wider public world.

More information about Haverford College’s John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center can be found at www.haverford.edu/HHC/

One of America’s leading liberal arts colleges, Haverford is a close-knit intellectual community located just outside Philadelphia on a serene campus that is a nationally recognized arboretum.

Founded in 1833, Haverford is the oldest institution of higher education in North America with Quaker roots and is today a non-sectarian and highly diverse institution that retains many of the guiding principles of its founders, such as emphasis on community and respect for individual conscience.

Haverford’s 1,200 students, who enjoy an eight-to-one student-faculty ratio, come from independent and public schools across the United States and 17 countries around the world.
