Armstrong-Browning Library and Museum

I was introduced to the Armstrong-Browning Library and Museum on the Baylor campus by my son David, to get out of the house during the pandemic. It’s the largest collection of letters and mementoes by married poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, housed in a library whose creation was spearheaded by Dr. Andrew Armstrong, chairman of the English Department at Baylor from 1912-1952, and his wife, Mary Maxwell Armstrong. I’m not much of a poetry buff, but it’s a world-class, beautiful space to spend some reflective moments in. The stained glass windows around the outside of Leddy-Jones Research Hall and Hankamer Treasure Room illustrate lines from the poets’ works, and the light and peaceful atmosphere is incredible. It’s as spiritual a place as any church. — Susan Bean Aycock
