The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection

The David Rumsey Historical Map Collection focuses on 16th through 21st century maps of North and and South America, as well as maps of the World, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Oceania.

The AMICA Library

The AMICA Library contains over 108,000 works of art from the collections of contributing museums worldwide. Cultures and time periods range from contemporary art, Native American and Inuit art, to ancient Greek, Roman, and Egyptian works, along with Japanese and Chinese works. Types of works include paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and photographs, as well as textiles, costumes, jewelry, decorative art, and books and manuscripts.

The Farber Gravestone Collection

The Farber Gravestone Collection is an unusual resource documenting the sculpture on over 9,000 gravestones most of which were made prior to 1800. The late Daniel Farber of Worcester, Massachusetts, and his wife, Jessie Lie Farber, were responsible for the largest portion of the collection. Others whose work is incorporated into the collection include Harriette Merrifield Forbes, who worked in the 1920s mainly in Massachusetts, and Dr. Ernest Caulfield, who documented Connecticut grave markers. These early stones are both a significant form of artistic creation and precious records of biographical information, now subject to vandalism and to deterioration from the environment. The data accompanying the photographs include the name and death date of the deceased, the location of the stone, and information concerning the stone material, the iconography, the inscription, and (when known) the carver. Some carvers whose work is known but who have not been identified by name are entered by stylistic groupings, rather than by name. Carver attribution is a young and healthy area of research in a constant state of flux. The American Antiquarian Society would like to acknowledge the assistance of Daniel and Jessie Lie Farber, Henry Lie, Dr. Ernest Caulfield, Laurel Gabel, and David Rumsey, all of whom worked to make this project a reality.

Harambee Flame

For years the leaders of the Harambee Afrikan Cultural Organization (“HACO”) knew that one of the keys to combatting—and perhaps reversing the damage of—imperialism and the racism, sexism, capitalist fundamentalism, and those aspects of American culture associated with it, was to grapple with the mass media. This included keen awareness, of course, of the need to liberate the mind when their bodies daily withstood the deprivations and indignities of Nebraska correctional system. Hence the birth of the Harambee newsletter, published by African-American men of HACO imprisoned in Tecumseh and Lincoln, Nebraska. Theirs was not a new battle, for the principal eighteenth and nineteenth-century genres of anti-slavery agitation—abolitionist newsletters, African-American-controlled newsletters like Freedom’s Journal, and fugitive slave autobiographies—were efforts to spread the word against the propaganda machinery of the industrial slavery complex and agrarian capitalism. The aim, of course, was multiplicitous: To enlighten those like Frederick Douglass who awoke to new possibilities and understanding of the depth of his own physical and mental imprisonment after his chance encounter with the Columbian Orator (a collection of essays used in American classrooms); to document the atrocities and shape public and elected officials’ opinions; and, to win over those nonpartisans who knew too little of how slavery fit into a larger cultural scheme of control that regulated and monopolized their own lives. Consequently, when the Harambee newsletter returned as the Harambee Flame, its editor stating, “It has been quite sometime since you’ve seen the Harambee newsletter” (sic), it was joining a long and distinguished tradition. Written by David Rice, the editor/publisher and former Omaha Black Panther Party co-leader who would soon change his name to Wopashitwe Mondo Eyen we Langa, the Flame entered a new phase even as it kept true to its original purpose. Rice, a poet, dramaturge, sculptor, organizer/activist, and fierce educator, tapped into his abilities to introduce the Flame as a means of recovering African culture as a corrective. Why rename it the Flame? That is best left in the words of Mondo, whose cause (along with Ed Poindexter) was championed by locals and international human rights leaders—e.g., Danny Glover, Kathleen Cleaver, Jimmy Carter. Warehoused as a political prisoner, like many other Black Panther Party members, Mondo, as I and other people of good will who have had the privilege of knowing him can attest, was never one at a loss for words. He was an articulate, sardonically humorous Elder statesman, and is now an Ancestor (he passed in March 2016) who epitomized the concept of the flame, which I am happy to let him describe for you: Flame is what enables us to find our way through darkness. And there is little question that much darkness surrounds us here in the U.S., darkness thick like fog, which pours out at us when we turn on our televisions and radios, when we turn the pages of the newspapers, when we open the doors to enter ‘our’ schools and ‘our’ government buildings. We grope & bump against things because the lies and illusions impede our vision. It is the purpose of the HARAMBEE FLAME to shed some light, if it isn’t but a flicker, on who we are as displaced Afrikans in the U.S. and to provide some insight as to the sum and substance of the conditions in which we find ourselves. Our symbol (seen at the top of this page) is the key-and-spear. Keys unlock and spears kill. We see knowledge/cultural awareness as being the key to liberation and a weapon against continued enslavement. And it is toward this end that FLAME is directed. We will present news articles, reports, essays, poetry, short stories, anything that has the capacity for bringing enlightenment. And we call upon you, our Brothers and Sisters, to contribute your knowledge and talents to the pages of forthcoming issues of FLAME. If you have enjoyed the simple, yet elegant, lyricism of this introduction, whose prophetic tones are painfully a propos to our own times, I am sure you will find your own “flame” and “key-and-spear” in the rich, liberating content of the Flame, and Mondo’s everlasting spirit. —Gregory E. Rutledge Associate Professor of African-American Literature Harambee Volunteer, 2006 to Present

Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film Archive

In the fall of 2015 the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film began the process of organizing and digitizing materials from previous theatrical productions and significant department events, beginning with the years 2004-2014. Going forward, all future productions will be available at this location while we also continue to add items from previous years, going back to the University Theatre’s first production, George Bernard Shaw’s You Never Can Tell, in 1908. The Carson School is fortunate that many people have endeavored to preserve these historical materials since the school’s inception. Consequently, a great deal of sorting, organizing, and scanning will be needed to accomplish our goals. The addition of materials to this website will occasionally deviate from a chronological progression in order to provide outreach for alumni groups or provide resources for other areas of interest. Some files, such as reviews from The Lincoln Journal Star, are in folders with restricted access in order to honor copyright. The contents of these folders will only be available to current faculty and students or to the public by visiting the Library on campus. All production materials belonging to the department are made available for personal use only. For commercial use, please contact the Carson School at jcstf-archive@unl.edu Do you have production photos or other materials that are missing from the archive? If so, please contact us at jcstf-archive@unl.edu. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated.

Leon K. Hughes Photography Collection

The Leon K. Hughes Photography Collection is a chronicle of African American family and community life in Wichita, Kansas from the late 1940s through the 1970s. The images provide an "inside" view of African American life rarely seen by the general public. They show family gatherings celebrating marriages, birthdays and graduations and reveal a vibrant community life comprised of a wide array of churches, schools and organizations. Together, these photographs suggest how African Americans, for centuries, refused to allow the nation's color line deny them experiences of love, faith, dignity, and grace. It is this rich context of family and community life in Wichita, Kansas that enabled the city's African American youth to express their pride and determination by successfully organizing the nation's first successful lunch counter sit-in during the beginning of the Modern Civil Rights Movement, July 1958.

Ceramics Highlights from the Williamson Gallery

Fred and Estelle Marer donated to the Scripps College, Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery an international collection of contemporary ceramics, including American, British, Japanese, Korean, and Mexican works. The collection's core is focused on West Coast ceramics, especially the work of the "Otis Group," who challenged the traditional direction of the field of ceramics in the mid-1950s. Fred Marer was not a man of wealth but a teacher of modest means, teaching mathematics at Los Angeles City College. Though he never had substantial resources, he slowly amassed his collection by interacting with ceramic artists and buying works directly from them. His collection came to Scripps through the influence of renowned ceramist Paul Soldner, who turned the Scripps ceramics program into a major center of study and exhibition, convincing Marer to make this generous gift to the college. From the 1970s sections of the collection have come to Scripps through long-term loans and donations.

Dante Collection

The library has outstanding holdings in early Italian printing, and its Dante collection is particularly renowned. The coverage is exceptional, including 14 of the 15 editions printed before 1500, and in total, 39 of the 44 editions of the Divine Comedy printed in Italy before 1629, often in multiple copies, as well as editions of Dante’s other works of the period. Digital facsimiles of eight early editions have now been completed, in part with funding from the British Academy (https://manchesterdante.wordpress.com/about/">Manchester Digital Dante) and John Rylands Research Institute. These editions were produced at a time when editorial conventions in the new medium of print were still extremely fluid and they express very different approaches to and intentions for Dante’s poem in their format, layout, and accompanying paratexts. We hope to add more to this collection in the future.

Early Printing Collection

The library has significant holdings relating to the early development of printing in Europe. A collection of over 4000 incunables (books printed with movable metal type before 1501) covers the earliest examples of printing from Johann Gutenberg in Mainz to William Caxton at Westminster and beyond. There are also an important number of blockbooks and prints.

In addition there are artefacts (such as Gaskell’s inkstand) and famous portraits. Two related collections also contain significant Gaskelliana: the Jamison Family Archive, and the papers of Gaskell scholar and collector J.G. Sharps. Material from all of these collections has been digitised, along with some items which remain in the possession of Gaskell’s descendants.

Peterloo Collection

On the 16 August 1819 around 80,000 men, women and children gathered to hear the charismatic orator Henry Hunt speak upon the pressing need for democratic and social reform. They had filed into St Peters Field from across Manchester and its satellite villages and towns. Some had walked many miles to attend. In 1819, despite its size and importance, Manchester did not have an MP and only a small number of wealthy male inhabitants were eligible to vote. Rapid industrialisation, urbanisation and population growth had catapulted Manchester from a sleepy town to the shock city of the industrial revolution. Conditions were squalid and wages low. Many working people felt that if they had the vote their voices would be heard and their sufferings remedied. At that eventful meeting in August, just as Henry Hunt mounted the hustings and started to speak, the yeomanry charged in to arrest the key speakers. During the ensuing panic the Cavalry also charged, ostensibly, to restore order. Casualties included the old and young, women and children. As news of the traumatic events circulated, it acquired the satirical name ‘Peterloo’ in mockery of the battle of Waterloo which had taken place only four years previously. The events at St Peters Fields remain a pivotal event in British history and one which is critical to the democratic freedoms we enjoy today. The records selected for digitisation reflect a range of perspectives from those indignant and horrified to see a peaceful crowd attacked and murdered to those who congratulated Manchester’s Magistrates bravely quashing a potential revolution. We are particularly pleased to include a full run of the Manchester Observer (1818-1821) which documents the events leading to Peterloo and its aftermath

American Public Transportation records

The organization that would eventually become APTA first organized as the American Street Railway Association on December 12, 1882, in Boston, Massachusetts. The initial meetings focused on the price of oats for the horses that pulled transit vehicles, but that focus evolved as more transit companies built electric systems. In January 2000 the name of the organization was changed to the American Public Transportation Association. Despite various name changes, the mission of the organization has more or less remained the same, specializing in issues dealing with transit equipment, transit management, and labor issues.

Arthur E. Scott photograph collection

This collection contains photographs taken by Arthur E. Scott, a photojournalist and photo-historian for the U.S. Senate. Arthur E. Scott, widely known as "Scotty" on Capitol Hill, first covered the United States Congress in 1935 as a photographer for the Washington Times. Later, he worked for International News Service and United Press International. In 1955, he became the photographer for the Republican Senatorial Committee where he served for the next twenty years. During his last year with the U.S. Senate, he was the official photo-historian for the Senate Historical Office. There he set to work on a project he had advocated for many years: collecting a likeness of every person who had served as a United States senator. His collection reflects the entire forty-years of Scott's association with Congress. More photographs are available in the physical collection described here: http://sca.gmu.edu/finding_aids/scotta.html

Artist Book: Dirtylaundry

Atchison Union Depot & Railroad Company collection

This collection consists of five original photographs by an unknown photographer.

On January 6, 1888, a locomotive boiler explosion occurred at the railroad station in Atchison, Kansas. It is possible that these photographs were taken after that explosion. The explosion created a fire and enough damage that the station had to close. Rebuilding was delayed due the high price of acquiring needed extra track room.

Anatomy

Welcome to the Anatomy image collection. Initially, this repository holds Edinburgh-owned images from the Ars Anatomica project, but in due course we will add high-resolution images digitised from our Anatomy collection.

Architectural Drawings

This collection is based around the architectural drawings of William Henry Playfair (1789-1857) and Robert Rowand Anderson (1834-1921). While Playfair's most important works in Edinburgh have been executed in the Greek revivalist or classical style - earning for Edinburgh the title of 'Athens of the North' - he was competent in other styles too. New College, housing the University's Faculty of Divinity and the Church of Scotland's General Assembly Hall (the latter being the temporary home of the Scottish Parliament from 1999) is a jagged-lined rendering of the Gothic style. He also built country houses and mansions in the Italianate and Tudor styles. Anderson had four years of legal training, and then while serving with the Royal Engineers he studied construction and design. He then entered the Architectural Section of the School of the Board of Manufactures, and before setting up in practice in Edinburgh, in around 1875, he spent a year in continental travel. His practice was very successful and his output was large. His work included the University of Edinburgh Medical School, the Scottish National Portrait Gallery (and Museum of Antiquities), Edinburgh, the Montrose Memorial within the High Kirk of St. Giles, Edinburgh, Mount Stuart on the Isle of Bute and Central Station Hotel, Glasgow. Anderson was knighted in 1902 and he was the first President of the Scottish Institute of Architects.

Peploe, John Bellany, Anne Redpath and Elizabeth Blackadder. The Art Collection has as its centrepiece the Torrie Collection of 17th century Dutch and Italian Masters with works by Ruisdael, ten Oever, Van der Meulen, Pynacker, Rosa and van de Velde. The University also holds the second largest collection of portraits in Scotland ranging from 17th century portraits of John Napier and John Knox to the recent dynamic painting of Peter Higgs by Ken Currie. Other portrait artists represented are Sir Henry Raeburn, Stanley Cursiter, Sir George Reid, James Cowie and Victoria Crowe. A large percentage of the Art Collection is on display enhancing the public, staff and student spaces of the University. A number of works from the Torrie Collection are on long-term loan to the National Galleries of Scotland. The principal areas of display include Edinburgh College of Art, Old College, Playfair Library, Raeburn Room, the University of Edinburgh Library, New College, McEwan Hall and the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. As well as supporting research at all levels of the University, the uniqueness of the Art Collection lies in its innovative use. The collection is interpreted and displayed in new and exciting ways, introducing contemporary insights and conversations to constantly reinvigorate debate. This involves working closely with Edinburgh College of Art and The Talbot Rice Gallery to ensure that collections are developed through contemporary collecting and also utilised by some of the world's leading contemporary artists, academics and curators and presented to as wide an audience as possible.

Carmichael Watson

The Carmichael Watson collection in Edinburgh University Library, centred on the papers of the pioneering folklorist Alexander Carmichael (1832-1912), is the foremost collection of its kind in the country, a treasure-chest of stories, songs, customs, and beliefs from the Gaelic-speaking areas of Scotland. It offers us fundamental insights into the creation of Carmichael's greatest work Carmina Gadelica, an anthology of Hebridean charms, hymns, and songs, and a key text in the 'Celtic Twilight' movement. The value of the collection goes far beyond literary studies. It offers exciting potential for interdisciplinary cooperation between local and scholarly communities, for collaborative research in history, theology, literary criticism, philology, place-names, archaeology, botany and environmental studies. Through cataloguing, indexing, transcribing, translating, digitisation, and conservation, this project aims to open up and make accessible this important collection to the academic and broader community.

ECA Photography Collection

Using the Collections Access to the ECA Photography Collection is restricted to the staff and students of the University of Edinburgh. Images from these databases may be used in lectures, seminars and presentations, and purely for the purpose of non-commercial research, private study, criticism or review. Any presentation slides with these images should not be placed on a virtual learning environment (e.g. WebCT) or on webpages as this is considered to be dissemination and would infringe copyright. The images should be redacted before the presentation is shared. Acknowledgement of the source of the image is good practice and this can be placed adjacent to the image or towards the end of the research, study, critical or review piece. Copyright information The images in the ECA Photography Collection are in copyright under the laws of the United Kingdom, and through international treaties, other countries. They may not be republished or reproduced in print, electronic form, or by any other means, (except in the case of screen prints for the purpose of strictly non-commercial private study and academic research) without the specific permission, in advance, of the copyright holder and the holding institution.

The responsibility for identifying copyright holders and securing any necessary permission to use an item rests ultimately with the person or persons desiring to do so.

ECA Rare Books

The Rare Books Collection of Edinburgh College of Art, includes about 1,500 items, which date from before 1489 to the twentieth century. Most of them are printed books; many of them are illustrated. It is particularly strong in books of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries on architecture, design and ornament. There are also nineteenth-century photographs, examples of textile design, and early nineteenth-century hand-painted designs for Edinburgh Shawls. Many of the books originated in the collections of the institutions which preceded ECA: the drawing academy of the Board of Trustees for Manufactures in Scotland, and the School of Applied Art. The collection is now housed in the Centre for Research Collections in the Main Library.

Geology and Geologists

Geo science was first taught in Edinburgh under the title of Natural History. Professors included Robert Ramsay, John Walker (1731-1803) and Robert Jameson (1774-1854), who held the Chair for fifty years. When George Allman (1812-1898) was about to retire, the University received a letter from Sir Roderick Impey Murchison (1792-1871), Director of the Geological Survey of the United Kingdom, proposing that the Chair of Natural History to be divided, in order to create a separate Chair of Geology. To this end he offered to provide an endowment of £6,000. The University received a further letter from Murchison, in which he added that the endowment was conditional on him being the person to nominate the new Chair of Geology. The University then wrote to the Treasury asking for a grant of £200 per annum to make the Chair viable. The Treasury replied that they were prepared to provide this sum on condition that Murchison's clause regarding nomination be deleted. In March 1871, Archibald Geikie presented his commission to the Senatus Academicus, as the holder of the first Regius Chair of Geology. At that time Archibald Geikie was the President of the Edinburgh Geological Society and, coincidentally, Sir Roderick Murchison was its patron. One way or another, Murchison got his own way. Geikie was succeeded by his younger brother James Geikie (1839-1915) in 1882. The Geology Department was located in Old College until 1932, when it moved to King's Buildings. Its new home was named The Grant Institute, in recognition of an endowment from Sir Alexander Grant and was opened by Prime Minister James Ramsay Macdonald on 28 January, 1932. Inter-related collections held in the department and in Special Collections, include papers and objects relating not only to University of Edinburgh geologists but also the wider community, including both Murchison and Sir Charles Lyell (1797-1975).

Hill and Adamson

In the mid-1840s, the Scottish painter-photographer team of Hill and Adamson produced the first substantial body of self-consciously artistic work using the newly invented medium of photography, one which ranks among the highest achievements of photographic portraiture. A substantial quantity of their work is held by the University Library. During their four year collaboration, which only ended with the death of Adamson, they produced around 3,000 images, around 700 of which are available in this collection. It includes photographs of local characters and famous figures of the era, as well as landscape and urban scenes.

Incunabula

Incunabula, from the Latin for "swaddling clothes", are books from the infancy of printing - anything printed using moveable type before 1501. These books are among the most precious items in any library and Edinburgh University is privileged to have a significant collection of nearly 300 such books. These early books have been extracted from other sequences and other collections, including the libraries of Dugald Stewart and Clement Litill. Many have numerous provenances. There are some particularly beautiful books with hand-colouring and early bindings. A copy of the Decretals of Gratian, printed in 1472, was reputedly the favourite printed book of its owner, William Morris (Inc.4.4). Most of the books are continental imprints, including a copy of the first book printed at Venice in 1469. There are, however, two papal indulgences printed by Wynkyn de Worde in 1497 and 1498, and an imperfect copy of Caxton's Polychronicon. The oldest printed book in the Library is in fact a Chinese book printed in woodblock in 1440 - Zhou yi zhuan yi da quan [Complete commentaries on the Yi Jing], Df.7.106.

Laing Collection

David Laing bequeathed his collection of rare books and manuscripts to the University of Edinburgh in 1878. It resides as a unique asset in the University's Special Collections - an archive of rare historical importance containing many of the most exceptional, beautiful and important manuscripts and books in Scotland. As a result of its sheer size - some 500,000 items - and its complexity, it has yet to be properly conserved, catalogued or studied. A selection of images from this collection are available online.

MIMEd (Musical Instrument Museums Edinburgh)

St Cecilia's Hall is home to the University of Edinburgh's musical instrument collection, which ranks among the world's most important collections of musical heritage. St Cecilia's Hall has been granted official Recognised Collection of National Significance to Scotland status. The emphasis of the Collection is on instruments that are no longer in regular current use and the collecting policy is to acquire instruments when they fall out of use rather than to collect instruments by contemporary makers. The Collection thus covers the period from the 16th century (the earliest from which examples are available for acquisition) to the 20th century (the most recent from which instruments can be regarded as historic). Many of the instruments are still playable and through an established concert programme and as a regular venue during the Edinburgh International Festival, the Concert Room provides a contemporaneous setting for performances, within which the audience can be seen as the interface between the University and the public. For instance, St Cecilia's Hall is the only place in the world where it is possible to hear 18th century music in an 18th century concert hall played on 18th century instruments. The instruments are supplemented by an archive of original materials, working papers and a sound archive. The Collection as a whole attracts researchers from far and wide and is an extensively cited resource in international scholarship. Instruments are lent to prestigious exhibitions at home and internationally.

There are also Sanskrit charters on copper plates, and Oxyrynchus Papyri.

Roslin Institute

The archives and printed collections of the Roslin Institute were acquired by Edinburgh University Library Special Collections in 2009, following the Institute's merge with the University's College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine. The collections comprise: the archival records of the Institute and predecessor bodies (including the Animal Breeding Research Organisation); a large collection of bound offprints from the Institute and predecessor bodies, as well as from F.A.E. Crew; rare books from the Institute's library, and a collection of nearly 3,500 late 19th/early 20th century glass plate slides. These collections are currently being catalogued with funding from the Wellcome Trust, who have also funded the digitisation of the glass slide collection. Catalogues are searchable online on the CRC's Archives and Manuscripts pages.

Salvesen Collection

The history of the firm of Christian Salvesen goes back to 1851 when Christian Salvesen arrived in Leith and set up in business as a shipowner and broker. Two years later he joined the Edinburgh merchant George Vair Turnbull, continuing in partnership with him until he went solo in 1872. Three of his sons, Thomas, Frederick and Theodor joined him in the business; the fourth, Edward, preferred a legal career which began with a law degree from the University of Edinburgh, and which culminated in his elevation to the College of Justice and the Bench as The Hon. Lord Salvesen (1857-1942). The archives of Christian Salvesen Ltd were surveyed by the National Register of Archives (Scotland) 1968 and deposited with the University Library in 1969, with several tranches of additional material coming in later years. "A List of the Archives of Messrs Christian Salvesen Limited deposited in Edinburgh University Library" was compiled by Tom Hubbard on a grant from the firm, and was published by the Library in 1981; copies are available for consultation in the Special Collections Department. Histories of the firm held in the Library include "Salvesen of Leith", by Wray Vamplew (Edinburgh & London: Scottish Academic Press, 1975) and "A whaling enterprise: Salvesen in the Antarctic", by Sir Gerald Elliot (Wilby, Norwich [U.K.]: Michael Russell, 1998), both of which have been presented to the Library. Sir Gerald Elliot, Chairman of Christian Salvesen plc from 1981 to 1988, has also presented to the Library a collection of historic books on whaling in the South Atlantic and the Antarctic.

Scottish Session Papers

The case papers of the Scottish Court of Session, Scotland’s supreme civil court, are the most significant, yet still unstudied, printed source for the history, society and literature of Scotland from 1710-1850. During this period, every paper which came before the Court was required to be printed for the lawyers, in a small number of copies. There are three surviving collections of the Session Papers, held by Edinburgh University Library, the Faculty of Advocates, and the Signet Library, all in the city of Edinburgh and containing approximately 250,000 items. From October 2016 to April 2017 – and in partnership with the Faculty of Advocates and the Signet Library – the University led a pilot project which captured 13,500 images from the three collections, tackling examples of volumes from different series, dates and physical states, and surveyed the overall conservation and preservation needs. Further digitisation will be carried out later in 2018 and more images will then be made available.

Shakespeare

The library's rich holdings of early English drama include the majority of editions of William Shakespeare published before 1660, mainly through the Halliwell-Phillipps Collection. Halliwell-Phillipps (1820-1899) was a prolific and controversial literary scholar, who built up vast collections on Shakespeare and English literature.

Thomson-Walker Portraits

Sir John William Thomson-Walker (1871-1937), surgeon and print-collector, formed an outstanding collection of engraved portraits of European medical men dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries. Born in Newport, Fife, Thomson-Walker was educated at the Edinburgh Institution and the University of Edinburgh, graduating in 1894, before undertaking postgraduate study in Vienna. He set up in Harley Street, London, as a consultant at King's College and St Peter's Hospitals, becoming one of the leading urologists of his day. In 1907 he was appointed a Hunterian Professor of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, and was knighted in 1922. He held a number of visiting lectureships, and was elected President of the Medical Society of London in 1933. Print collecting was his lifelong passion. In his will, Thomson-Walker bequeathed his collection to the University of Edinburgh, "in the hope of encouraging the study of the history of medicine on which this great medical school has had such a profound and lasting influence". The collection came to the University in 1939. Including subsequent accessions funded by his endowment, it now totals nearly 3,000 prints and a number of books on the art and technique of engraving. Digitisation of the prints is ongoing.

Walter Scott Image Collection

The Walter Scott Image Collection is based primarily on the visual materials and realia contained in Edinburgh University Library's Corson Collection. The former include portraits of Scott and of people associated with Scott, art inspired by his novels and poems, illustrations to editions of his works, and pictures of places associated with Scott. They cover a variety of formats: oil and watercolour paintings, drawings, engravings, etchings, lithographs, and photographs. The realia consist of memorabilia and other examples of material culture associated with Scott and his homes and haunts (especially Abbotsford). In addition, there are playbills, title pages, and illustrative material relating to theatrical and musical adaptations of Scott and to translations of his work. The Image Collection also contains manuscripts of Scott's works and correspondence drawn from the Corson Collection and the Library's Laing Collection. Like the Corson Collection itself, the Image Database is wide-ranging and eclectic. It is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the diffusion of Scott's work in Scotland, Great Britain, and abroad, in Scott's role in the creation of Scottish national identity, and in his influence on British and foreign depictions of Scotland.

Western Medieval Manuscripts

Civil Service Employee Association (CSEA)

The Civil Service Employees Association, Inc., or CSEA, is the largest public employees' union in New York State with over 260,000 members. CSEA began in Albany, New York in 1910 as a collective effort by a small group of state employees to secure better wages and working conditions. Originally known as the Association of State Civil Service Employees, the organization adopted its current name in November 1946. Between 1920 and 1940 the organization grew from a handful of workers to a membership of over 600. This increase in membership was largely based upon the admittance of non-competitive class civil service employees. By 1947 the organization admitted another class of state employees, local government workers, with the issuance of a charter to Westchester County employees.

New York State Writers Institute

The New York State Writers Institute's central aim is to enhance and celebrate literature, writing, and performance, and to recognize the position of writers as a community within the larger community. Founded in 1983 by Pulitzer Prize-wining author William Kennedy, the Institute received a legislative mandate in 1984 under New York's arts and culture law to encourage artistic expression through the literary arts. Over 1,000 writers —nationally and internationally acclaimed as well as emerging authors in all genres have visited the Institute to give readings, lectures, seminars, and interviews for student and public audiences. Most of these presentations were audio and/or videotaped. The resulting archive of over 4,000 hours of recorded material makes it one of the most comprehensive collections of its kind in the nation. Portions of this collection are available here for scholarly research and general interest.

Adobes in San Luis Obispo County Library Collection

From the mission days of the 1770’s to the mid-1800’s, adobe structures were the dominant building style. The clay soil of San Luis Obispo County is well adapted to the manufacture of adobe bricks and under the tutelage of Spanish Missionaries, the Chumash Indians became skilled adobe craftsmen. Unfortunately, the local climate with its moist coastal influence and seasonal freezing and thawing caused many of the adobe structures to crumble. With the arrival of the Pacific Coast Railway in the late 1870’s, wood became readily available and replaced adobe as the primary building material. As wood replaced adobe brick, the architecture and style of buildings changed in San Luis Obispo. The photographs of the Historical Adobes of San Luis Obispo County were taken in 1962. Some of the buildings no longer exist. Identifications were made as well as possible from existing information.

The Minerva Club Yearbooks, 1906 - 1947

The Minerva Club was founded in Santa Maria in 1894 as the Ladies Literary Society. In the late nineteenth century, the Santa Maria Valley was sparsely populated and largely undeveloped, leaving many of the area’s women lonely and starved for entertainment. The club’s members came together to socialize and sponsor programs that would be entertaining and enlightening. They also established the first lending library in Santa Maria, and have been instrumental in supporting the public library ever since. In 1906 they changed their name to the Minerva Library Club, in honor of their early member and Santa Maria Valley pioneer Minerva Thornburg. The collection consists of photographs and documents from the yearbooks put together by the Minerva Club, starting in 1906. These items depict the members of the club, many of whom were prominent citizens of Santa Maria, as well as the club’s activities.

C. Szwedzicki: The North American Indian Works

Between 1929 and 1952 C. Szwedzicki, a publisher in Nice, France, produced six portfolios of North American Indian art.

Terrace Plaza Hotel

The Terrace Plaza Hotel, located in downtown Cincinnati, was designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill and was the first building to bring widespread acclaim to that firm. When it opened in 1948 it was deemed to be the most progressive American hotel of its day. SOM designed everything for the hotel including the furniture, fabrics, uniforms, matchbooks, china, and silverware. The integration of modern art in the hotel's lobby and restaurants was heralded as wildly successful. The client, John Emery, a great benefactor to the city of Cincinnati, in addition to choosing the architecture firm, also had a hand in selecting the avant-garde artists: Alexander Calder, Joan Miró, Saul Steinberg, and Jim Davis.

The Terrace Plaza Hotel Collection will grow; however initially it consists of a large set of architectural drawings that were found in the hotel's basement in 2011.

Bent and Hyde corresponded from 1905 until Bent's death in 1918.

Charles F. Snow Photographs

Charles F. Snow (1886-1964) was an accomplished professional photographer in Boulder, Colorado, from 1909 to 1961. His portraiture work was innovative at a time when it was common practice to put sitters in head clamps, or pose them in very specific preconceived ways. Snow chose to capture his subjects in natural poses to avoid stiff or uncomfortable expressions on their faces. While some professionals concentrated their artistic work on only men, Snow photographed both genders and was exceptional at capturing images of children. The Charles F. Snow Photographs, 1910-1961, depict the University of Colorado Boulder campus and its faculty, as well as the Boulder area and its residents. This digital collection consists of negatives, 1919-1920, and a selection of Snow’s index cards, 1930-1963, which record the sitter’s name, address, and other information.

Colorado Directories

City and county directories were commercially published, individual and business directories prior to telephone books and the yellow pages. They were produced starting in the nineteenth century and continued late into the twentieth century. In Colorado, such directories began in the 1870s. Since they were often produced annually, especially in the case of larger towns and cities, they helpfully augment the federal manuscript census, which only appeared every decade. City and county directories entries typically show a name (sometimes spouse), occupation, business address, and residence. After 1910, there was sometimes a reverse directory by street address. There were often classified sections by business type, usually in the back; municipal information was usually in the front. By the mid-nineteenth century, telephone numbers had started to appear, along with indications of property ownership. A cross index of telephone numbers appeared later. Directories have been useful to social and ethnic historians, and to genealogists, for use in social mobility studies, locating and describing individuals, family and community reconstitution, creating occupational charts, and historic preservation. Currently this collection consists primarily of directories from Leadville, Colorado Springs, and Denver. The collection will continue to grow as new materials are added.

Colorado Historical Maps

This collection of maps covers the time period from the origins of the Territory of Colorado through the early twentieth century.

This collection contains Campbell's notes for the first English-language biography on Boulanger, who was arguably the most influential music pedagogue of the twentieth century. There are few extant documents from the later part of Boulanger's life, and Campbell's collection is unique in its ability for us to witness how Boulanger mediated the creation of these biographical efforts. The archival collection includes his correspondence with Boulanger in the last three years of her life; notes from interviews with Boulanger; correspondence with Boulanger's secretary and life-long friend, Annette Dieudonné; and numerous testimonials in the form of letters and other documentary evidence sent to Campbell by Boulanger alumnae.

Taft selected 4000 images that he considered significant, printed them, and prepared a traveling exhibition, which generated a great deal of interest, especially in Kansas. In 1983, with funding provided by NEH, the entire collection was surveyed, and additional images were printed, and cataloged along with the images selected by Taft. It is this subset that has been digitized and presented
