Welcome to the Marion B. Gebbie Archives and Special Collections

Summer 2018 update: The Gebbie Archives and Special Collections will be offline and closed for research for summer 2018.  Should you have questions or concerns, please contact archives@wheatoncollege.edu.


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 contact the College Archivist or the College Historian for coordination on your research.
