Native American Resources in Haverford College Special Collections

Haverford College Special Collections is rich in primary source material having to do with American Indians from the 17th century to present, especially those relating to the long-standing involvement of Quakers in Native American affairs. In addition to the resources listed in this guide, additional materials may be found by searching Tripod (subjects including "Indians," "Quakers," and "Society of Friends"  will produce the most comprehensive results), our collection Finding Aids, and our in-house card catalogs. Librarians in Special Collections are eager to assist with research and may be contacted at
