April’s featured display on level 2 of the High Library, “Understanding the Riddle”, focuses on Dr. Donald Kraybill’s distinguished career at Elizabethtown College, and includes a variety of images from the Hess Archives of Kraybill as well a selection of his many books. Don, the foremost expert on Old Order Amish culture, first began teaching sociology at Elizabethtown in 1971 and has also served as Director of the Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies as well as Interim Provost.

Dr. Kraybill is retiring from teaching this year, and the college community is celebrating his dedication to research and engaged student learning by honoring him as this year’s SCAD (Scholarship and Creative Arts Day) lecturer. The lecture will take place on Monday, April 20th from 7:30-9 pm in Leffler Chapel and Performance Center.

Please enjoy the display and help us congratulate Don on his remarkable career at Elizabethtown.
