Abstract

In early December 2011, lawyers representing Hamilton College drew up contracts detailing the transfer by sale and by gift of my wife’s and my collection of printed materials—an important part of the Miller Collection—to the college’s library. The collection is composed of more than 14,000 individual pieces of Shaker “ephemera.” This brief essay will outline what the collection consists of, how it came to be formed, and of greatest importance, why it will find a new home in Clinton, New York.
