Guide to the Research Collections
Although this collection does not appear to be extensive from a count of entries in the Public Catalog, additional material listed under such headings as "Arms and Armor," "Arrow Heads," and "Cross Bow" lends strength to the subject. In addition to entries for books are many index entries for articles in periodicals and learned journals. In 1946 the library acquired the Paul H. Gordon collection of books on archery, which included periodicals and pamphlets; the material in the collection covers the period from the late 1600s to 1946. After that date materials have been added on a representative basis.
