Oliver Everett, librarian emeritus of the Royal Library, Windsor Castle, United Kingdom, will present a free lecture entitled Buckingham Palace, Its History, Occupants, and Contents.

This lecture describes how the building developed from a modest Georgian house to the present palace: from King George III's purchase of a family home in 1762 to the creation of a remarkable palace by King George IV and John Nash in the 1820s to the royal residence used by Queen Victoria and monarchs ever since as the center of British court life and the glittering setting for thousands of official functions and state visits. The palace also contains hundreds of art treasures from the Royal Collection, including world famous paintings, furniture, sculpture, porcelain, clocks and other objects.
