Who killed Sarah Stout? That's the title question of an exhibit, now at its close, that examines the murder and subsequent trial of this infamous (and still unsolved) 17th century case. In this Dig into the Archives event, curator Jen Rajchel will reveal the judgments of the Haverford community and discuss the role that fame plays in the public's historical memory. We will examine the various accounts of the case of Sarah Stout through post-trial popular literature that seeks to unveil her passionate designs and, ultimately, design her.
