Wisconsin Collection

Scope and Contents

The Wisconsin Collection contains over 2,500 titles and features books covering a full range of topics about Wisconsin or by Wisconsin authors. As a collection that we purchase into, we have been able to acquire unique holdings of local and regional writers with a special emphasis in poetry. Because Lawrence University was started as a territorial college, we also have early state government documents and early histories of the Fox River Valley and Appleton. The Lawrence community and the citizens of Appleton and the Fox River Valley take pride in their historical heritage and make frequent use of this collection.

The Wisconsin Collection, as well as the Wisconsin Government Documents, are located on the fourth floor, outside the Kruse Room.
