The Temperance Collection

Location: Green Library, Special Collections.

Content: This collection combines the archives of reformer William Hoyle and the Joseph Livesy Library, consisting of three elements: 1400 separately published pamphlets and tracts, 320 books (including a section on contemporary biography), and newspapers, journals and conference reports. The main strength of the collection lies in the wealth of mid-Victorian controversial and ephemeral material.

Access: BOOKS are cataloged individually - an alphabetically ordered author/title list is available for searching. A fuller record for each book can be found using author/title search (e.g. baker{au} and curse of britain{ti}) in Socrates.

PAMPHLETS, and JOURNALS AND PERIODICALS are cataloged together as a collection under the overall call number 71-03051. To get details to page these items, consult the on-line catalog and use the overall call number along with the number from the catalog for any specific item.

Research Access and Use: Materials in the Department of Special Collections are non-circulating and must be used in the Special Collections' Reading Room in the Cecil H. Green Library. The Reading Room is open 10:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Photocopies, photographs, and microfilm can be made of some materials in the collections. For more information about the collections and access policies, please contact Special Collections by telephone at (650) 725-1022, by electronic mail at speccollref@stanford.edu or by regular mail at the Department of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries, Stanford, California 94305-6004.
