The Marion E. Wade Center (50th Anniversary)

Wade Center2

Last year I did a post (see below) about the Wade Center. I thought it was a great time to remind everyone about this excellent resource because it was fifty years ago that it first began. The center now has a blog and they did a story about the 50th anniveary.

 Originally  known as “The C.S. Lewis Collection,” this resource, now goes by “The Marion E. Wade Center” is a lot more than an online destination. However because it does have a good variety of material in addition to what’s available at their physical location at Wheaton College I felt it worth putting in the spotlight. Both locations are devoted to not just Lewis, but also six other British authors (Owen Barfield, G.K. Chesterton, George MacDonald, Dorothy L. Sayers, J.R.R. Tolkien, and Charles Williams).  

There is an individual main page dedicated to each author and an additional page listing resources that included a selected biography PDF. While there are several other sections to explore at the site, the one not to miss is under News and Events; its the Media Downloads page. If you plan to visit the physical location in Illinois then the Collection Listings page under the Collections & Services section is an invaluable area to consult.
