Trojan Tales: Overlooked treasure in the Doheny Treasure Room

Have you ever paid attention to the murals in the Doheny Treasure Room? This Trojan Tale dives into some of the history behind the artwork.

“The Written Word Passeth On the Torch of Wisdom” covers the history of the printed word from 3500 B.C. to 1886–it’s been on display in the Doheny Treasure Room for almost a century now. Victoria Alejandro gives us some background on the space itself and speaks to Tyson Gaskill, executive director of communications and events for USC libraries.
