Flann O'Brien exhibit at Burns through March 26

The typewriter, hat and violin of the late Irish writer Flann O'Brien are among the items on display in a special exhibition of the novelist's papers that runs through March 26 in the O'Brien Fine Print Room of the Burns Library.

Flann O'Brien was the pen name of Brian O'Nolan (1911-66), who earned critical acclaim for such novels as At-Swim-Two-Birds and The Third Policeman , as well as for a long-running series of newspaper columns he penned under the name "Myles Na Gopaleen" for The Irish Times .

Boston College acquired the writer's papers in 1997. The current exhibition draws from that collection, which is housed in Burns Library and includes typed manuscripts, extensive correspondence, various personal effects and a library of more than 400 books.

The new Burns Library exhibit "Boston College: The First Century, 1863-1963" traces the history of the University from its founding to its centennial celebration. Among the items on display are photographs, paintings, publications, letters and artifacts.
