Paul Bunyan Collection

Welcome to the Paul Bunyan Collection

The Paul Bunyan Collection of the Children's Literature Research Collections, at the University of Minnesota, was established in 1960 with the gift of an extensive group of books, pamphlets, photographs, etc., the result of many years' active collecting by the late Professor W. W. Charters of Ohio State University. Since then gifts from a variety of friends and purchases by the library have produced a sizeable assemblage of books, manuscripts, pamphlets, reprints, newspaper clippings, drawings, photographs, phonograph records and other memorabilia which, whether folklore or fakelore, demonstrate that the legendary logger is a name to conjure with.
