Selections from the Minor Myers jr Personal Collection

In the fall of 2005, the Ames Library acquired approximately 1300 books from the personal collection of the late Minor Myers, jr. (1942-2003), 17th President of Illinois Wesleyan University (1989-2003).

This collection is primarily housed in Tate Archives & Special Collections on the library’s 4th floor. Patrons may search the library catalog for the collection as a whole or by some of the subject areas found within the collection such as Book Arts and Conduct of Life, both of which are active collecting areas in Special Collections.

For assistance working with this collection, please contact the archivist by email at or by phone at 309-556-1538.
