The Rosenbach Museum & Library

The Rosenbach Museum & Library was founded in 1954 by Dr. A.S.W. Rosenbach and his brother, Philip. The Rosenbach houses one of the finest collections of Irish literature in the United States, with the original manuscript of Joyce's Ulysses, Bram Stoker's autograph notes for Dracula, and manuscripts by Oscar Wilde, John Keats, and others. The Rosenbach also produces Philadelphia's Bloomsday, a day of free readings, Irish music, theatre and food, attracting an audience of thousands.

In 2017 The Emigrant Support Programme was delighted to support the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia and provide funding for their Bloomsday 2017 Project
