New Daguerreotype of Emily Dickinson

Since Michelle posted about Dickinson House, I want to make sure that all of you know about the new daguerreotype of Emily Dickinson that has been discovered. Amherst College Archives now have a copy, and here is an interesting article about the image.

Thanks to Lucy Abbott, former student in English 325 and now a guide and museum assistant at the Emily Dickinson Museum, for letting me know about this, in particular the you tube video, which is rather incredible.


  1. I love this! Martha Ackmann also showed us a really cool image similar to this that shows what she would’ve looked like when she aged. Maybe we can get her to share this with us? -Michelle

  2. Great video, you can really see her through her eyes.
