From the Vault: Dumbo First Took Flight in Syracuse
Onondaga Historical Association

Price: Free
Onondaga Historical Association
321 Montgomery St., Syracuse

The exhibit will guide visitors through the long and humble beginnings of this adorable character. Learn about the two Helens, both Syracuse University graduates, who worked together to create the Dumbo that we know today. Helen Aberson wrote the original story of Dumbo the Flying Elephant and Helen Durney drew the illustrations.

For this special exhibit, OHA has worked in collaboration with the Syracuse University Special Collections, where the original documents are housed due to their connection to the S.U. graduates. Due to the extreme fragility of the pieces, duplicates are used in place of the originals, but the story the pieces tell about the origins and evolution of Dumbo is one every Syracusan should know.
