Lloyd Mifflin Exhibition in Banner Hall

Mifflinn Lloyd Mifflin was born on September 15, 1846, in Columbia, Pennsylvania. His father, John Huston Mifflin, was English, and his mother, Ann Bethel Heise, was from German descent. His mother died when he was very young. Thus, Lloyd Mifflin’s early childhood education, notably painting, came from his father, who had studied at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. His formal education started at a nearby country school in Norwood. He later attended the Washington Classical Institute in Columbia. At the age of fourteen he spent a majority of his time reading his favorite poets by the Susquehanna River with friends. The Columbia Historic Preservation Society will be hosting an exhibition on Lloyd Mifflin in Banner Hall beginning Saturday, April 25 at 1:00pm. Items in the exhibit include various paintings on loan from private donors, as well as Mifflin’s personal sketchbooks. Paintings from various universities, including Penn State, F&M and Bucknell will also be on display. 

The exhibit will be open every Saturday and Sunday until December, as well as Fourth Fridays.

The exhibit is free of charge. Donations to the Society are greatly appreciated.
