Westfield Portrait Photograph Collections

Patterson Library holds an incredible collection of photographs.  Over 12,000 images are in our Westfield Historical Photographs from the Sherman, Mateer, and Alexander Collection. We are still in the process of digitizing our portrait collections.  Please contact Adult Program Specialist/curator Nancy Ensign at 326-2154 for information. 

Shells We have hundreds of shells, some as old as the 1830s.  Our shells came from two sources, John D. Patterson and Rev. Reuben Tinker.  Tinker collected shells in the south seas while he was a missionary on the “Sandwich Isles” (Hawaii).
