Cornell University Library Acquires the Recently Closed American Textile History Museum Collection

“A massive collection documenting the U.S. textile industry is set to become one of Cornell University Library’s largest acquisitions ever. The collection, from the Osborne Library at the recently closed American Textile History Museum (ATHM), is expected to fill eight or nine tractor-trailers when it arrives in Ithaca this spring. It comprises around 90,000 books, periodicals, manuscript collections, photographs, textile sample books, tintypes, glass plate negatives and trade catalogs that tell the story of the textile industry in New England and across the country.”
