The Lear-Carson Book Collection

The manuscripts and papers are supplemented by a non-circulating collection of books and pamphlets. The collection contains nearly 150 items, including first editions of Rachel Carson's works, biographies of Carson, environmental works by colleagues and associates, publications of government hearings, and a nearly complete run of The Atlantic Naturalist. One unique item in the collection is Rachel Carson's copy of her senior year yearbook at the Pennsylvania College for Women. The collection has been cataloged and may be searched in the library's online catalog, Caravan.
