Abstract

This monograph is a compilation of recollections and essays written by authoritative sources on The William L. Clements Library, namely people who previously worked or currently work there. The Clements Library, located on the University of Michigan campus, was the brainchild of Americana collector, William L. Clements (1861–1934), who was also a regent at the University from 1909 to 1933. The library opened in 1923 with the mission it still holds today: to collect primary resource materials associated with American history, especially early American history.
