We place ourselves and others. Here. There. Across a divide. Happy together. Those who love cats – those who abhor them. Those who find wonder in puppets – and those who recoil from them.
Maps mark another division: those who use maps – and those who delight in them.
Maps in Special Collections are distinct from those in other campus libraries because of their age or significance. Like our interests, Special Collections maps are diverse, but most deal with the Southwest, Arizona, or Mexico, and range from the early sixteenth century to the early twenty-first century.
