BYU Larsen Yellowstone Collection

The Larsen Yellowstone Collection has as a core two great private collections of Yellowstone Park publications. The first came to Brigham Young University in 2000, when A. Dean and Jean M. Larsen gave their coll ection of more than 2,000 Yellowstone items to the BYU library's L. Tom Perry Special Collections. At the time of its donation, the Larsen collection was considered one of the premier private collections of Yellowstone material and contained many scarce and unusual items. The companion collection to the Larsen donation is a library of more than 800 items assembled by Ron and Jane Lerner of Bozeman, Montana- evaluated by one rare book dealer as "the finest in public hands". These two collections were brought together through a generous donation by Rex and Ruth Maughan. Curators at the Perry Special Collections continue to add hundreds of unique items each year to the Larsen Yellowstone Collection, making it one of the most important and complete libraries of Yellowstone Park materials in the world.
