Eight Decades at the Folger Shakespeare Library (1932-Present)

Frank O. Salisbury. Henry Clay Folger. Oil on canvas, 1927

Shakespeare Steps Out

Standup Shakespeare

The Folger’s day-to-day calendar is packed with performances, programs, tours, conferences, institutes, publications, and exhibitions. This timeline, updated from a version assembled for the Folger’s 70th anniversary in 2002, offers a longer perspective. Browse through to see how much has changed—or stayed the same—during our 75-plus years as an institution.


The first part of this timeline (through early 2002) also appears in print in the richly illustrated, 220-page book Infinite Variety: Exploring the Folger Shakespeare Library.
