Welcome to the Marion B. Gebbie Archives and Special Collections

Officially established in 1980 with the help of a generous donation from the Gebbie Foundation, Wheaton’s Archives and Special Collections houses the college’s archives, rare books, manuscripts, and realia that relate to Wheaton’s rich history.

The Gebbie Archives and Special Collections are open for researchers Monday-Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and other hours by appointment.  Because portions of the collections are housed offsite, please email us for coordination on your research prior to your visit.
