Amherst College Library History Collection, 1850-1987 (Bulk: 1850-1965)
1 archives box, 1 half archives box (0.75 linear ft.)
The Library History Collection, 1850-1965, contains materials compiled by former Librarian Newton F. McKeon. Mr. McKeon assembled these materials to write a history of the Amherst College Library. This history, however, was never written. The Library History Collection includes McKeon's notes, copies of library reports and records, ephemera dating from the 19th century, and published and unpublished articles and reports about the Amherst College Library. Most of the material focuses on the late 1800's through the early 1910's. Reports describing the spatial needs of the library dating from 1937, 1959, and 1961 are also included.
