Special Collections

The Elizabeth Shepard Special Collections contains the library's rare and special publications within the archives space. They include theses by graduates of the Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing, and papers by students in honors and history seminars, and in interdisciplinary programs. There are also some published documentary works in American history, several early Bibles, and the American Guide Series, written and published under the aegis of the Federal Writers ' Project during the 1930s. Other books in the archives are publications by college staff, faculty, administrators and alumni; histories of the college, local and regional histories, guides to Western North Carolina, some items on the Presbyterian Church, and most of the published writings by the Rev. Dr. Warren H. Wilson. We also have a collection of original bird prints by John James Audubon and Albertina prints of original Dutch and German art masters.
