The Frank H. Stewart Room is home to a unique collection of over 15,000 rare books and pamphlets, and over 5,000 documents and manuscripts on New Jersey and Colonial history. It is named for Frank H. Stewart, who willed much of his collection to Rowan University on his death in 1948. When presented, it was the largest private collection of New Jersey history, and is frequented by researchers, genealogists, historians, authors, and Rowan University faculty and students.
