Cunningham Collection

In recognition of the service of Arthur Cunningham, first library director from 1891 to 1928 at what became Indiana State University, his third wife and widow, Bess Rippeth Cunningham made a donation in 1956 to establish the Cunningham Collection. The Collection includes important editions of the works of American educators and educational psychologists such as Dewey, Barnard, Hall, James, Mann, and Thorndike. The collection also came to include editions of early educational journals, notable nineteenth-century textbooks, books on practice, and even some early children's books. Originally containing about 300 volumes, the collection has expanded to approximately 1,000 volumes.
