The Rare Book Collection at the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library includes incunabula, titles from seventeenth and eighteenth century France and Britain, and eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth century American works, including significant holdings documenting the Mississippi valley and travel and exploration in early America. Additionally, there are significant holdings relating to New Orleans and Louisiana. This online collection currently consists of an atlas of the 1796 voyages of a French general traveling as a spy on the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers; the first edition of the famous mapmaker scientist Ptolemy's works (around 83-168 A.D) to include part of North America; and copper-plate etchings illustrating the life of the Union Armies during the Civil War.
Contains over 350 letters written by Mary Elizabeth McIlvain and Ralph J. Ratcliff over the course of their courtship, engagement, and marriage, with letters ending soon after their daughter, Dianna Alice, was born. They met through a mutual friend in 1941 and began writing letters late that year, with the friendship quickly turning into romance. Ralph's conscription into the army in 1942 meant that they spent much of the next three years apart, with the exception of furloughs and a period in 1943 when she lived with him in Buffalo, New York, before his next transfer. The letters end in mid-1944. Letters indicate that Mary was the one to propose engagement to Ralph. She was also the one who initiated the letter-writing. Both were working when they first met: Mary at a garment factory in Paris, Kentucky, and Ralph at a machine company in Cleveland, Ohio. Collection also contains other letters from friends and family, empty envelopes, pamphlets, newsletters, greeting cards from various occasions, and a photo album.
