Robert T. Ramsay, Jr. Archival Center

(Archives & Special Collections)

New Digital Collections Available

Metadata Librarian Brian McCafferty recently completed the digitization of two archival collections. The Hovey Letters  consists of nearly 400 letters written between 1822 and 1876 that document the life of Edmund O. Hovey as student, Presbyterian minister, and educator. They also provide accounts of events in the early history of Wabash College, pioneer life in frontier Indiana, Presbyterian thought and missionary activity, the personal concerns of early 19th century Americans, and the Hovey family history.  The Hovey Scrapbook is a collection of ephemera related to the earliest decades of Wabash College. It was assembled by Edmund O. Hovey, a founder and the first professor of sciences at Wabash, and consists of letters, memoranda, annual catalogues, programs of College events, and newspaper clippings covering the period from 1832 to 1876. 

Dear Old Wabash is the blog where Beth Swift, Archivist , shares the history of the College.  Read about the interesting events and people over the past 182 years that have made Wabash College what it is today!
