The 19th Wife

Currently on the New York Times Best Seller list, David Ebershoff’s The 19th Wife was written, in part, making use of materials from the Libraries Special Collections. In the acknowledgments, Ebersohoff writes:

...the Irving Wallace Archive at the Honnold Library at the Claremont Colleges holds a fine collection on Anna Eliza Young; I’m grateful to Mr. Wallace for making his original research available to the public and to Carrie Marsh and the other archivists who maintain it today.

The Libraries have a copy of The 19th Wife for check out in the Braxton collection.

No Access to Blais on Wed., Sept. 3

The Blais server will be down all day Wed., Sept 3. During this time there will be no access to Blais, the library's online catalog, and off-campus users will not be able to access databases. The Link+ catalog can be used to determine the location of a book, but Link+ requests will not be available. Because CST books are not in the Link+ catalog, there will be no way to look them up while the Blais server is down. We apologize for the inconvenience.
