The Greenslade Special Collections and Archives houses Kenyon's rare books, literary manuscripts, photographs, newspapers, and College archives.

Welcome to Greenslade Special Collections and Archives

The Greenslade Special Collections and Archives consists of two main collections: Special Collections and the Kenyon College Archives. Special Collections includes rare books and special subject research collections. The Kenyon College Archives contain material related to the history and people of Kenyon College.

The department is named in honor of Thomas Boardman Greenslade K1931, longtime College archivist and Kenyon alumnus.
