Strider-Pottle-Marriner-Homecoming  1978

Left to right, President Strider, Frederick Pottle and Earnest Marriner with Warren Finnegan at 1978 Homecoming ceremonies. Strider, Pottle and Marriner are key figures in our Special Collections history.

Our fabulous collections were acquired through the dedicated efforts of many individuals who played various roles over time.

Librarians, curators and donors, and others who acted as facilitators, formed deeply-interconnected relationships that are the heart of our story. Special Collections has greatly benefited from this rich interplay of personalities.
