The Campbell Collection


Knox College Library

2 E. South Street

Galesburg, IL 61401



Books and notes on the lawn in an outdoor class.

Known as the John D. and Nelle Laughlin Campbell Children's Literature Collection, the collection was established in 2003 by the Campbell children.

An initial gift of books from a Campbell family friend, Jewell Stoddard, was an important element in creating a collection based on illustration and content. The books, many first editions, many signed by the authors are Caldecott winners. The collection will continue to grow and will support the work of students in educational studies programs.
