On March 25 2014, Dr. Donald A. Hopkins delivered a program entitled, Robert E. Lee in War and Peace, in which he discussed his new book, Robert E. Lee: The Photographic History of a Confederate and American Icon, which is a photographic biography of Lee. Dr. Hopkins' book contains all 61 photographs taken of Lee during his lifetime. He also discussed various photographic methods of the period. Special Collections set up a display of Lee photographs outside Northen Auditorium. The Friends of Leyburn Library provided refreshments. The event was the Friends of Leyburn Library's first collaborative effort, co-sponsored with the Friends of Lee Chapel, and the Friends of Preston Library. The event was free and open to the public.
