On April 9, 2013, during the New Member Installation Ceremony for Sigma Tau Delta (the English National Honor Society on campus) the society presented Special Collections with a rare book to add to its holdings. This year, all of the proceeds raised from a St. Patrick’s Day bake sale went to the acquisition of a book for the department. The officers and the faculty sponsor decided to select a text by an Irish writer to keep with the theme of the bake sale. They picked a 1906 edition of Oscar Wilde’s Salome (Bodley Head published) with illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley.
