The Greenslade Special Collections and Archives may be famous for their extensive collection of The Collegian, but it also acts as Kenyon’s very own Cave of Wonders, housing some interesting and strange artifacts of Kenyon’s history. Fifteen minutes wandering through the stacks can lead you to all sorts of majestic goods you never thought someone would think to keep, but you’re sure glad that they did.
This is but a small sampling of all of the goods that the Special Collections houses. Along with objects, there is also an extensive collection of rare books and manuscripts, along with files on many of the current and former students of Kenyon College. Come on down and check and see if you have one for yourself! The Greenslade Special Collections and Archives are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. It’s a ‘touching’ collection where visitors can touch anything that they request, with the exception of photographs. Ever wanted to lay your grubby hands on a page of a Gutenberg Bible? Head on over to the Collections because this is your big chance.
