​Doctoral candidate Sarah Leonard at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botalical Gardens

Doctoral candidate Sarah Leonard is currently spending two months as a Robert A. Wark short-term fellow at the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California. While at Huntington, her primary research focus has been the William Morris materials in the Sanford L. Berger collection, particularly the one-of-a-kind Merton Abbey dye book. The dye book is a handwritten ledger created by Morris that details the dye recipes needed for his color printed fabric designs. Sarah has also been taking advantage of the rest of the Huntington's wide-ranging art and library collections. 

On the weekends, Sarah has been exploring LA-area museums - one particular highlight was spending a day at the Getty Center with alumna Amy Martin, (M.A. 2014) and her family.

In mid-March, Sarah will begin three months of research in the UK, spending one month in residence at New College, Oxford as the Huntington - New College Exchange Fellow. Then, Sarah will spend two months completing archival research in London, supported by the William Morris Society (US), the Paul Mellon Centre, and the UD Center for Material Culture's Friends of Rockwood Fund.
