Rudolf G. Schade Archives

The Rudolf G. Schade Archives at Elmhurst College is a special collection that many people including the students do not know about. However, this collection holds many different interesting items such as picutres, diaries, and even an old blue jay costume. A lot of interesting information can be found on the many important people of Elmhurst College from past presidents to respected alumni.

They had an interesting collection in here. One thing is that they keep all the elmhurst college hymnals. It really is a good source of historical musical writing and stuff like that. It is a source I wouldnt have thought of.

I thought the hymnals were really interesting too! All of the sources in the archive were amazing to me. I always figured that such a history as this collection would be sitting somewhere in Old Main... but it's a part of our library!

Who knew that Elmhurst had this great resource? I think that it is really interesting to hear about the things that make my school what it is today! And to know that one day, I will be somewhere in the these archives in one way or another. As well is was very cool to be able to be at the dedication of the Archives. I have never been at such an occasion before, and it was interesting to see how things like this get named, and how appopriate the name is for this archive.

I think it's neat how people come from all over the country to do research in the archives. We may not be as impressive as Northwestern, but EC still has some neat stuff packed up in the archives. I'd like to look through the old yearbooks sometime.
