Quaker & Special Collections
Quaker & Special Collections contains Haverford College’s rare books, manuscripts, and the college archives. We seek to collect, preserve, and make available materials which serve the research and teaching needs of the Haverford community as well as the wider scholarly community.
Our world-renowned Quaker collections, which illuminate Quaker life, faith, and practice from the earliest days of the Society of Friends to the present is the highlight of the collection, while our varied collecting foci provide many opportunities for researchers.

Photographs by Jack Weinstein '23. This exhibit tells the story of the creation and destruction of Black Lives Matter murals in Uptown Minneapolis in the summer of 2020. During the protests that followed George Floyd's murder, many businesses were boarded up, and activists as well as businesses painted murals on the plywood boards memorializing George Floyd and other victims of police brutality and celebrating the Black Lives Matter movement. The photographs in this exhibit were taken throughout that summer as murals went up and then began to be taken down. In accordance with COVID-19 protocols, Lutnick Library is closed to the public during the fall semester with the exception of public lecture times.
