Civil War Collection
Scope and Contents
Our Civil War Collection is a standout in the region. If one were to consider the seminal pieces in the field, especially Lincolniana, our collection likely has a copy. It contains over 2,200 titles and includes contemporary books and current scholarship, photos, military documents, and books of music. The collection was started by two alumni, Robert S. French, ’48, concentrating on Lincoln, and Keville Larson, ’20, dealing with the Civil War more generally.
