A History of the Hiram College Library from 1850 to 1995.
Harbison, Philip W.
This paper presents a history of the Hiram College (Hiram, Ohio) library from 1950 to 1995. It highlights important events and decisions made in the construction and opening of the new library building on September 7, 1995 and shows how this achievement has revitalized the spirit and optimism of everyone involved. The paper also presents the successes and failures experienced by Hiram College as an example to other small, private, liberal arts colleges, showing what can be accomplished and achieved with limited funds and with the help of loyal supporters and friends. Also included is a review of the literature on issues dealing with small, liberal arts colleges, as well as information on library building planning. Background historical information is provided for Ohio's Western Reserve, the village of Hiram, Hiram College, and its library. Appendices include: the Hiram College Mission Statement; chronological listing of principals of the Western Reserve Eclectic Institute and presidents of Hiram College; chronological listing of library directors; artist drawings of the new Hiram College library; and floor plans for the new Hiram College library.
