"WHAT A PLACE FOR A LAKE":This photograph is one of 60 period images showing the construction of Lake Carnegie a century ago and made from a collection of period glass negatives discovered in a storage closet at the MacMillan Building in 1996. The collection was transferred to the University Archives and the glass plates were restored in a project funded by the N.J. Historical Commission. The 8-by-10 prints in Firestone Library's exhibition, "O, What a Lovely Place for a Lake: The Centennial of the Construction of Loch Carnegie," represent the first time that the negatives have been enlarged and displayed. They will be on view from now through September 24. See Art Review on page 16.
