A collection of 77 maps dating from 1486 to the late 1800s. They contain examples of the development of mapmaking, from highly decorative maps of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to the more scientifically accurate maps and nautical charts of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. They were collected by Alfred Cormack, an executive of the Jantzen Corporation, and given to the college after his death in 1968. Cormack's youngest son, James Frederick Cormack, graduated from Reed in 1948. A link to the web site with images of the maps, which are stored in the archives, can be found at http://www.library. reed.edu/collections/antmaps/index.html.
