Virtual Tour: Art and Architecture

with Clive Martin

Join BA Docent Clive Martin for a virtual tour of the library's historic landmark building, including inspiring views of its reading rooms and an introduction to its history and remarkable collections. Whether you are new to the Athenæum or a member who frequents the building, Clive has stories that are sure to impress and surprise you.
Man in suit stands behind a table with a large bound manuscript in a book cradle.For thirty years Clive Martin worked as a lawyer just two blocks from the BA and never stepped inside. Now that he's retired and a BA docent, he can't tear himself away from the place. Clive loves nothing better than introducing visitors to the building's many pleasures, treasures, and oddities, and to the history of this unique Boston institution.
