Ex Dono Collection
The Ex-Dono Collection was established for the books given to the library in its early years (1820-1825) outside of the original donors of Bentley, Winthrop and Thomas. The Library Catalogue of 1823 lists the books in this collection.
American history can be found in various collections. The Lincoln Collection was original created by Ida M. Tarbell, Class of 1880. This collection contains many of Ida Tarbell's collected books. The collection also contains gifts from Mr. John Schiede from Titusville, Pennsylvania. His interest in Lincoln grew out of Ida M. Tarbell's writings on Abraham Lincoln. The Lewis Walker Collection is a repository of Civil War books and, of general interest in American history, there is the Americana Collection.
