Lewis Walpole Library Fellows' Guide: Visiting Scholars' Follow-up

Information about Visiting Fellowships and Travel Grants at the Lewis Walpole Library

Au Revoir and Keep in Touch!

We hope your research visit to the Lewis Walpole Library was fruitful. You are welcome to return.

If you would like to stay at the Timothy Root House for a future research visit, please let us know. We can offer a room for use for up to a week, during the time spent working at the Library in Farmington, on a space available basis. You will need to make other arrangements for accommodations for time spent using the collections in New Haven.

Help us spread the word about the Library and the Visiting Scholar opportunities--tell your colleagues about us. 

Should your contact information change, email us at walpole@yale.edu 

Please keep in touch!
