The Meredith College Archives is presenting an opportunity to acquire a unique piece of Meredith’s intellectual heritage. At a very reasonable cost you can own a book from Dr. Carlyle Campbell’s personal library.
Carlyle Campbell, president of Meredith from 1939-1966, was respected and beloved by students for his personal and caring manner towards everyone he met. He also had a talent for interpreting the intellectual ideas studied at Meredith in a way that resonated with students. His talks were so memorable that in 1996, 30 years after he retired, alumnae published a collection called Chapel Talks.
Upon his death in 1977, Dr. Campbell’s personal library, books he used to stimulate and expand his considerable intellect, came to the College Archives. This important collection reflects Dr. Campbell’s view of life and the world. With this in mind the Archives produced a complete bibliography and, where appropriate, added books to the library’s circulating collection. With the bibliography finished, we can now offer the remaining volumes to the Meredith community.
For $12.00 the Archives will send you a book from his library, accompanied by a bookmark describing its origin. While we are unable to offer specific subjects or titles, you are sure to be pleased with this piece of Meredith’s intellectual heritage.
