Special Collections and Archives
Bowdoin’s Special Collections holds many Armed Services Editions, small and cheaply printed books that were issued for soldiers to take to war. Nancy Noble, a cataloger at Maine Historical Society, shares her thoughts about how these unassuming paperbacks remind us of the power of the written word to change lives.
Special Collections & Archives assumes modified public hours this summer, beginning Monday, June 5. Come explore the College’s rare books, manuscripts, and archival records this summer on weekdays between 1:00-5:00 p.m. or by appointment.
