Environmental History materials in Haverford Special Collections

Environmental history materials

Haverford College Special Collections contains rich primary source resources related to environmental history, particularly as it relates to land use in the Mid-Atlantic from the colonial period to the present. This guide presents some of the items that researchers may find useful, but is not a comprehensive listing of all health-related materials. Links to online collection guides or catalog records have been provided throughout this guide, but most sources must be consulted in paper in Special Collections. Librarians in Special Collections are eager to assist with research and may be contacted at
