Warner Map Collection


The Warner map Collection includes fine examples of 16th-, 17th-, and 18th-century
cartography. The earliest of these is a 1585 Ortelius map of the world that clearly outlines the
southeastern portion of what is now the United States. The Warner Map Collection was
a gift to the University of Alabama from the estate of Mildred Westervelt Warner (1893-1974).

The University of Alabama is pleased to be able to showcase the Warner Map Collection, which
is housed in the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library on the campus in Tuscaloosa.

Each page in this exhibit includes the map's call number and other catalog data as well as
a link to a high-resolution image (where available) on the Alabama Maps web site.

Alabama Maps is an ongoing project of the Cartographic Research Laboratory, which operates
under the auspices of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Alabama.
