About the archive

The Small Stewart Archive documents the authors' artistic, literary and intellectual pursuits, spanning from the 1970s through the present. The collection includes drafts and original art, unpublished works, notebooks, sketchbooks, correspondence and journals that document the literary production, professional careers, and personal lives of David Small and Sarah Stewart.

The University Libraries acquired the collection in 2019, and it is now at home in the Zhang Legacy Collections Center on Oakland Drive. The collection's debut, initially planned for fall 2020, was delayed due to COVID-19.

Contact Susan Steuer, Professor, Special Collections, University Libraries, for further information about the archive.
