The Walt Whitman Collection at Adelphi University

Welcome to the Walt Whitman Collection in Special Collections at Adelphi University Libraries in Garden City, New York . The Collection was established by Professor Emory Holloway, an early Whitman scholar and Adelphi faculty member from 1914-1937.

In recognition of the one hundredth anniversary of Whitman's death, Adelphi Libraries mounted an exhibition featuring items from the collection. In conjunction with the exhibition, Adelphi Professor Thomas Heffernan coordinated a symposium entitled Walt Whitman Here in Trimming Square .
