Clason Road Map & Atlas Site

Clason's refrence Maps title page

Collectors of Clason state road maps issued between 1923 and 1931 are presented with challenges around determining map publication dates. Unlike Rand McNally and Gousha, the Clason Map Company typically did not place dates or date codes on its products during this period. A systematic review of the maps contained in Clason state road maps, touring atlases, and Green Guides reveal that the road legends and other map symbols varied over the years in systematic ways. This Clason Map website, with content developed by Mark Greaves and Carl Liedholm, represents an attempt at providing a guide to dating these maps.

The Clason Road Map & Atlas Site is available on the Libraries' web site.

Comic Art

The Comic Art Collection holds over 200,000 items. Most of these items are American comic books, but also included are over 1,000 books of collected newspaper comic strips, nearly 15,000 foreign comic books, and several thousand books and periodicals about comics. Although some archival materials are held, the focus of the collection is on published work, in an effort to present a complete picture of what the American comics readership has seen, especially since the middle of the twentieth century.
