The A.M. Todd Rare Book Room houses a distinctive collection of rare and unusual books and manuscripts acquired by the college through the benevolence of alumni and friends. Taken together, the materials demonstrate the nature of intellectual inquiry over the past five hundred years and thereby reinforce the strength of the general library collection.
