The Harry Ransom Center encourages discovery, inspires creativity, and advances understanding of the humanities for a broad and diverse audience through the preservation and sharing of its extraordinary collections.

Proceeds from the World of Wonders gala will make it possible to acquire new works by important writers and artists and share these treasures with scholars, students, and the public in our Reading Room, online, and through our exhibitions and other programming.
