At a Glance
The archives of the Conference of Eastern College Librarians (CECL), 1912-1971, containing correspondence, manuscripts, and typescripts of papers delivered at the Conferences, programs, financial records, and other materials relating to each year's session. The correspondence is chiefly that of the Director of Columbia University Libraries, where the annual conference was held, and other librarians associated with the Conference. The early history of the Conference is represented by photocopies of correspondence and programs of the New England College Librarians Meetings, from 1907, as well as the early years of the CECL, 1912-1920. This material was the basis of Harold Turner's history of the Conference's first fifty years: FIFTY CANDLES FOR THE EASTERN COLLEGE LIBRARIANS. Turner's typescript carbon, galley proof, and page proof are included along with correspondence with many Eastern College Librarians concerning the Conference's history.
