About the Collection:

•    A research collection dedicated to the late 19th and early 20th century philosophy that informed design in architecture, furniture, textiles, metalwork, pottery and ceramics.

•    The foundation of the memorial collection is the professional library of Mary Ann Smith, a long-time Fayetteville resident, Professor in the School of Architecture at Syracuse University and founding board member of the Arts & Crafts Society of Central New York (ACSCNY). The library accepted the donation of her collected works in 2008.

•    A collaboration with ACSCNY has facilitated growth of the collection, honoring the memory of another founding member, Bruce Manwaring, and recognizing contributions of current members.

•    The society contributed a Harvey Ellis-style bookcase to house the Smith material. The library’s Stickley cabinet, located in the fireplace alcove of the Reading Room, holds additional titles. All material is available for on-site use by the general public.
