In October 2006, we opened a new collection for primary source materials: The Ecology Action Center Collection of organizational records. The group began as one of the first not-for-profit recycling centers in Illinois in 1971. Today, it continues to work with the three local governments (McLean County, Town of Normal, and City of Bloomington) to increase recycling and environmental awareness for business and community members.
Tate Archives & Special Collections opened this digital collection in 2004.
The World War II Correspondence of former faculty member and alumni (’49) Fred B. Brian are now available to virtual visitors. On-site visitors to the archives are always welcome, too! We are located in the beautiful Ames Library on the southern end of the Illinois Wesleyan University campus.
