Keating Collection @ RBSC

The Keating Collection consists of posters, picture albums, magazines, pamphlets, and other ephemera (pins, badges, etc.), mostly from the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) period. The collection is named after the donor Dennis M. Keating, Class of 1962, who has a bachelor's degree in Marketing from the University of Notre Dame.

During your visit to Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC), you will be looking at some twenty posters out of more than 200 posters in the Keating Collection. You are welcome to visit RBSC again on your own to view these posters, as well as other posters and items that were not shown during the class visit. RBSC is open from 9am to 5pm (Monday-Friday,  closed on Saturday and Sunday). (Email: | Tel: 574.631.0290)
