About This Site

This site is maintained by Pelletier Library with contributions from faculty, alumni, and the staff of Pelletier Library. Many thanks to Professor of History Paula Treckel; Arthur L. Lowrie, class of 1955; and Greg Gross, class of 1983.
The site is part of an ongoing project to bring some of the material in the Ida M. Tarbell Collection to the web.

The Ida M. Tarbell Collection is housed in the Special Collections of Pelletier Library at Allegheny College. Tarbell’s research materials for her published works, including her work on Abraham Lincoln, make up the greater part of the collection. Writings, correspondence, and notes relating to various aspects of Tarbell’s life are an important part of the collection. In addition, the archive includes photographs, portraits, and memorabilia which provide a glimpse into the life of one of the most influential women of her time. Scholars and researchers who wish to use the collection should contact
