BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- Looking for something to do this President's Day that's enjoyable, while also being educational?

Consider visiting the Yeager Collection at the library at Concordia College. It's not only free, but it's a hidden treasure trove of letters from folks who, though not Presidents, certainly hobnobbed with them.

The small room is chock full of 150 valuable letters and memorabilia created by founders of enduring business enterprises that represent America from the early 18th century forward.

Among them you'll find a letter from Benjamin Franklin, one of America's Founding Fathers, a letter signed by Andrew Carnegie, industrialist and philanthropist concerning his Endowment for Peace, and an early stock certificate signed by Robert Morris, a signer of the Declaration of Independence.

The collection is open during the college's library hours.
