Meet the Curator
As the Folger’s Associate Librarian and Head of Reference Emerita, Georgianna Ziegler was called back to curate Churchill's Shakespeare because of her in-depth knowledge of the library's Shakespeare holdings and her long experience with Folger exhibitions. These include America's Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s the Thing, Shakespeare's Sisters, and Elizabeth I: Then and Now. Ziegler is the author of numerous journal and reference articles and has served as President of the Shakespeare Association of America. She has enjoyed exploring Churchill's history and working with the staff of the Churchill Archives in Cambridge. Before coming to the Folger in 1992, Ziegler taught Shakespeare and was curator of the University of Pennsylvania’s Furness Library.
