Description In 1965 a group of NIU faculty members in the College of Education decided to create a resource library to support original research by students. They contributed books, documents, and artifacts to form the core of a research collection. In 1979 Ruth Blackwell, a teacher in South Dakota one-room school during the 1930s and 1940s, expanded the holding significantly through a large donation of books and artifacts from her personal collection. Ruth and her husband, Harold, a World War I veteran and attorney, also provided a substantial endowment to support the continued growth of the library and collections.
