Post-1923 library collection

Published by

Carlton Library Reading Room circa 1925-1929

Ever wonder what happened to the library collection after the “Old Main” Administration Building on Elon’s campus was destroyed by fire in January 1923? Belk Library has the answer! The 1923 fire destroyed the Administration Building which housed the library, as well as classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, the chapel, the museum, literary society halls, and dorm rooms. The President of Elon at the time, William A. Harper, reached out to the Elon community and asked them to donate any college publications and other materials that would help rebuild what was lost in the fire.

Those “other materials” included many books that became a new Elon College Library collection. After spending many years in storage, some of these books are now on display on the first floor of Belk Library. The books are on a variety of subjects, such as mathematics, theology, science and grammar and may not be checked out.

Celebrate Elon’s heritage

Published by

Celebrate Elon’s heritage at Homecoming this weekend (Oct. 22-24) and join alumni, faculty, staff, current students, and other friends of Elon University in all the festivities planned!

In 1895, 11 of Elon College’s first graduates united to establish the Elon College Alumni Association, which strove to keep “the memory of college days among the alumni, and to keep their support united for the good of the college.” To meet those goals, the association sponsored reunions to bring graduates back to campus. One such reunion, an annual October/November event called “Homecoming Days,” is mentioned in Elon communications dating to the early 20th century. Though the specifics of the celebration have changed considerably over the past 100 years, the spirit remains the same, bringing to the forefront the indelible link between Elon’s past and present.

For more information, check out the Homecoming schedule online.
