Library of Congress Gets Donation of Valuable Popular Art

The Library of Congress received a donation (from Stephen A. Geppi, owner and CEO of Diamond Comic Distributors) of more than 3,000 items, such as comic books, original art, photos, posters, newspapers, buttons, and pins. Originally comprising the Maryland-based Stephen A. Geppi Collection of Comics and Graphic Arts, which has been on public display for the past 10 years, the items include Beatles memorabilia and storyboards that depict the first appearance of Mickey Mouse (in Walt Disney’s 1928 film Plane Crazy).

“When I began collecting comic books as a young boy and then in earnest in 1972, I would have never dreamed that a major portion of my collection would find a home at the Library of Congress, alongside the papers of 23 presidents, the Gutenberg Bible and Thomas Jefferson’s library,” says Geppi. “This gift will help celebrate the history of comics and pop culture and their role in promoting literacy.”
