About the Ruth Ketterer Harris Library
The Ruth Ketterer Harris Special Collection is devoted to the study of textiles and design. It is named in honor of Ruth Ketterer Harris, a weaving professor who served as the first curator of the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection. The nucleus of this special non-circulating collection was a gift from Helen Louise Allen. Generous support over the years has resulted in a growing collection that now includes more than 4,000 books, pamphlets and journals. A bequest from the estate of Ruth Ketterer Harris doubled the library’s holdings and in 1993, integrated the collection within the School of Human Ecology. The library is cataloged in the UW-Madison’s electronic library system.
